Coming Up in the SOLIDWORKS User Group Network







It’s not often that I’m home for almost two months straight, but that changes starting next week with upcoming visits to SOLIDWORKS User Groups in Yakima, Portland, and Seattle.  The following week I’ll travel to “The City of Brotherly Love” for  SWUGN Summit – Philadelphia.  September takes me to Denver, Indianapolis, South Bend, Grand Rapids, and Boston. SOLIDWORKS 2016 Reseller Rollouts start happening in October, and I’ve been invited to attend a few of them.  A busy couple of months.

I’m not the only one traveling around this month.  Central MA SOLIDWORKS User Group leader Tom Cote shows up in Albuquerque tonight for the New Mexico SOLIDWORKS User Group meeting.

SOLIDWORKS CEO Gian Paolo Bassi will join me on my trip to the Northwest US. We’ll be visiting customers, attending SOLIDWORKS User Group meetings, and putting a few hundred miles on a rental car.  Join us in Yakima, Portland, and Seattle August 17th through the 19th.

Art Rozenbaum and the Palm Beach County SOLIDWORKS User Group have decided to meet monthly. Their third meeting happens on August 18th.

I once watched DASI Solutions’ Darin Grosser handle an entire five hour “What’s New in SOLIDWORKS 20XX” presentation with the same energy from start to finish, and it was brilliant.  Next week he’s on the spot again as the sole speaker for the West Michigan Lakeshore SOLIDWORKS User Group meeting on August 19th.
