Don’t Miss the SOLIDWORKS Largest User Group Meeting Ever 2017

Last year Todd Blacksher proposed something unusual for the SOLIDWORKS User Group Network: The SOLIDWORKS Largest User Group Meeting Ever, or SLUGME.

The idea was to bring together hundreds of SOLIDWORKS User Group members to live, local meetings around the world, and at a pre-designated time, each group will tune in to a broadcasted technical presentation. The event was a big hit for the 33 SOLIDWORKS User Groups that participated, and SLUGME is now an annual event.

This year on November 15th, more than 60 SOLIDWORKS User Groups will participate. All around the country (and a few places outside of the US), SOLIDWORKS User Group members will gather together at local meetings for food, networking, and other group business.

Then, at 7:30pm EST, each group will join a webinar featuring a one-hour SOLIDWORKS Tips and Tricks presentation by Todd Blacksher of the SOLIDWORKS User Group of Nebraska.

Based on the number of groups that will tune in, an estimated 1,600 SOLIDWORKS users will be involved in what will truly be the SLUGME.

NOTE: This is a LIVE event, and will NOT be broadcast publicly. You MUST attend your local SOLIDWORKS User Group meeting in order to participate.

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.
