Melody Norsworthy- HOTDUG's first President- established the Heart of Texas DB2 Users Group in 1997. Melody contacted her fellow DB2 colleagues within the Hill Country area to form the core group. The core group decided the mission, format and how often and when to meet, etc.

The first Heart of Texas Users Group meeting was held on November 4, 1997, at the John H. Regan building in Austin, Texas. The organization's founding officers were elected at the meeting which was a great success- boasting 47 attendees from 11 different organizations.
