SOLIDWORKS User Group Network (SWUGN) News

SOLIDWORKS World 2015 was a great one, and the SOLIDWORKS User Group Network was well represented.  At the 16th Annual SWUGN Summit meeting, we cheered, we laughed, and we were treated to guest appearances by a slew of SOLIDWORKS executives. We handed out awards to The Rapid Group (SWUGN Partner of the Year) and DASI Solutions (SWUGN Reseller of the Year), and we all patted ourselves on the back for a terrific 2014.

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.
