Presentation & Tour GM's new Enterprise Data Center

  • Wednesday, November 20, 2013
  • 4:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • GM Tech Center, Warren MI

SORRY, THIS EVENT IS NOW COMPLETELY FILLED UP and we cannot accommodate additional attendees. IF YOU HAVE NOT REGISTERED, PLEASE DO NOT COME AS GM SECURITY WILL NOT ALLOW YOU IN.
It has been called "The Data Center of the Future": General Motors new 'Ingeniously Simple' data center in Warren. It is one of the less than 5% nationwide, LEED Certified Gold data centers and since becoming operational, has enforced a strict "No Tours" policy. We are thrilled that GM has granted a one-time exemption, allowing exclusive access for our chapter members.

Join us at General Motors' Warren Tech Center, November 20th, at 4:30 PM for a brief orientation by Dwight Picou, followed by the tour which will focus on the unique infrastructure systems of the data center.

A light dinner and nonalcoholic beverages will be provided along with networking time after the tour.

Please note: Advance registration is mandatory for admittance to the GM Tech Center. No photography is allowed; cell phones with cameras must be left in your vehicle or have a seal placed over the camera lens by GM Security (they will remove it when you exit). The tour must start on time; latecomers can not be accommodated. 

The tour will be strictly limited to 30 participants. Precedence for slots will be allocated to current and renewing members who register on a first-come, first-serve basis; previous attendees and guests will be accommodated on a space available basis.

Chapter Members are free; there is a $20 fee, payable at the door for non-members.
