This Week in the SolidWorks User Group Network (SWUGN)

Early summer is always a busy time for SolidWorks User Groups.  Long days, nice weather, and lots of good stuff to talk about.  There are 15 meetings scheduled for this week, here are some highlights.

SolidWorks CEO Bertrand Sicot will be attending meetings in Baton Rouge/New Orleans and Houston this week.  NOBRSWUG leader Bobby Moore got the whole thing started with one simple Tweet.

User groups are a valuable resource to all members of the SolidWorks community. The ability to network with peers and partners helps your company become more productive. Take the time to find your local user group or if there is not one in your area, look into starting your own. To start your own group, visit the SolidWorks User Group Network website at www.swugn.org
