The 2016 Summit sponsors were instrumental contributors to the event, which provided JAMIS’ customers, partners, and industry experts from across the U.S. the opportunity to share and exchange knowledge in an engaging atmosphere.
The Keynote Speaker this year was Major Dan Rooney, a three-time tour of duty F-16 pilot, PGA professional and the founder of the Folds of Honor Foundation. Major Rooney received the White House’s Presidential Volunteer Service Award, the Air National Guard’s Distinguished Service Medal, the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, and The PGA of America’s Inaugural Patriot Award. His book A Patriot’s Calling: Living Life Between Fear and Faith was published in 2012. He was also recognized as one of People Magazine’s Heroes of the Year and one of ABC World News Tonight’s Persons of the Year.
“We were honored to have Major Dan Rooney at the 2016 annual JAMIS Summit,” said Jeff Noolas President of JAMIS Software. “His inspiring stories delivered a powerful message about leadership that captivated each and every member of our audience.”

In addition to the highly anticipated speaking sessions, attendees participated in a variety of educational breakout sessions on JAMIS Prime and JAMIS Classic, explored product demos and received post-conference comprehensive Prime ERP product training straight from the experts.
To complement the learning sessions, Summit participants enjoyed their evenings at an Italian Riviera themed dinner, a murder mystery dinner, as well the option to join a beer tasting at Stone Brewery World Bistro in Liberty Station on the last day of the Summit.
