Last month we held our 3rd annual training conference with our biggest turn out ever (150 attendees). Not only was the conference a huge success but the NCLUG was able to fill a panel van full of gifts donated to Toys for Tots. Thank you for your generosity, it helped make Christmas a little bit better for a lot of deserving children. Since this year’s collection was so successful we have decided to make it an annual event and with your help I’m sure we can continue to help the US Marine Corp with this great program.
With the beginning of the NCLUG’s fourth year the NCLUG Board of Directors would like your help in continuing to expand and grow our organization. We would like to create the following sub committees to assist the NCLUG with providing varied, current and relevant information to our members and insure that the NCLUG is fulfilling our member’s needs. We would like for people to volunteer to either be a member of or chairman of one or more of the following sub committees.
· MicroStation – anything and everything MicroStation
· GEOPAK/InRoads/MX – applying Bentleys tools to highway design
· Civil – Roads, sites, bridges, dams, etc., etc.
· ProjectWise/EDMS – engineering document and project management,
· Buildings/Architecture –BIM, Design and modeling
· Plant Design – PDS, piping and 3D
· Construction – using Bentley products in the field
· Visualization – 3D rendering
· Geospatial – GIS and mapping
· Interoperability – getting MicroStation to work with other programs such as AutoCad
· Miscellaneous - anything else
Volunteering is as simple as contacting any NCLUG officer or visit NCLUG.com and sign up on the subcommittee page. Being on a committee doesn’t necessarily require a lot of time though it could involve monthly conference calls and minor tasks. It is hoped that these subcommittees will help the NCLUG to put on meetings and conferences on topics that are important to our membership. Please feel free to sign up for more than one subcommittee and if you think there should be other ones by all means let us know. If you need assistance in soliciting your participation from your company, we will be glad speak with someone to discuss all the benefit NCLUG can provide.
Additionally the NCLUG would also like to expand to include additional parts of the state (Charlotte, Asheville, Winston-Salem etc.). If you live or work outside of the Raleigh area and would like to be involved in trying to make this happen please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can get started.
The NCLUG goal is to continue to expand and provide our members with the resources to make better use of their technology. You can visit our website at www.NCLUG.com to learn more and if you have any comments, questions or suggestions we would love to hear from you. The North Carolina Local Users Group is here for you, the member. We hope to see you at out next event.
