SWUGN Year in Review – November 2009

Top Story
46 SolidWorks User Groups take advantage of new SolidWorks forums "group" functionality by requesting their own social groups.  The Southern Minnesota SolidWorks User Group REALLY takes advantage and signs up 29 members almost immediately.  The group wins a contest and will have Greg Jankowski as a guest at a future meeting.

My official title is Senior User Advocacy & SolidWorks User Groups - but most people just call me "The User Group Guy". I've been a SolidWorks user since 1997, and was one of the founding members of the SWUGN Committee. Since starting the Central Texas SolidWorks User Group in 1999, my career path has led me to DS SolidWorks and a dream job supporting the SolidWorks User Group Network worldwide.
