CC&B 2014 will once again be your opportunity for Oracle CC&B collaboration with fellow colleagues and expert resources in the New Year!  This “for users, by users” grassroots user community event continues to enjoy no registratin fee; however, we are adding optional eventing events for your enjoyment for a nominal fee.  Thank you to Oracle for graciously providing access to their onsite convention center & logistic support services to further our cause.

As a for-users, by-users coordinated event, a preliminary 2014 Conference Schedule will be posted shortly.  If you are interesting in volunteering to make a presentation and share your wealth of CC&B knowledge with your fellow users, please contact the CC&B user community client leader from San Jose Water.  Attendees are also encouraged to visit this site for regular updates as the agenda will continue to evolve as we get closer to the event.

To enhance the educational value and information exchange at CC&B 2014, we encourage participation by solution partners that are actively working with the user community to further clients' customer care & billing initiatives. If your organization is collaborating with an intriguing industry vendor and you think they have a compelling story to share with the CC&B community, send them our way!  We have a variety of event sponsorship levels available; please contact us at

Following the format used last year, the Oracle Utilities Multi-Product Customer Advisory Board (CAB) scheduled for March 3-4, 2014, will be open to all customers for all Oracle Utilities products, and is a separate event from the CC&B User Group Conference.  The CAB meeting will be used to present Product Roadmaps and to solicit feedback from customers.  Please note that this CC&B announcement is not an invitation to the CAB.  Invitation and registration information for the CAB is forthcoming under separate cover from your Oracle representative . There is no cost to attend the CAB; registration will be handled separately (travel and other costs are the responsibility of each attendee).  However, there is a low event fee to attend the self-funded CC&B Wednesday event event to Half Moon Bay that relies solely on ticket sales and industry partner sponsorships each year.  For CAB questions, please contact
