Meet the Leadership Team

Layne Eckert

A member of the DFW VMUG since the THR meetups in Arlington. This guy has been loving the peer networking and camaraderie of this group since the dawn of time. He claims joining the leadership team in 2014 was the best 2nd and 3rd job he’s ever had.

Wences Michel

A USMC veteran with over 30 years of IT experience and a lot of breadths of various technologies. I am on a continuous journey as a lifelong learner, and always excited to give back to the community. Partnering with our membership to help put the “user” back into the user group. Thanks for the opportunity to serve, and I am grateful to each of you, as without you there is no community. Please feel free to ping me on how we can improve, and also share your ideas on growing the community. A toast to community and to living the dream! Salute!
