Phoenix Vectorworks User Group Meeting

May 27, 2010

Regarding the first Phoenix area Vectorworks User Group meeting… general consensus is to hold the first regular meeting and then have the continuing education seminar later in the month. This will give us all a chance to get to know each other a little and establish what the expectations are for this group. WIth that said, the first Phoenix User Group meeting will be held June 5, 2010, at 10:00 am. Wayne Hensley of AV Concepts, Inc. has been gracious enough to host this event. The AV Concepts office is located at 1917 West 1st Street, Tempe, AZ. I will post a link to a map and parking information early next week. This meeting is open to anyone with an interest in Vectorworks, so feel free to invite others.

I’d like to thank all of you that volunteered to host the meeting.

Also be advised, I will be starting a new job on Tuesday, June 1, 2010. So there is a possibility that the new job will require six, or possibly even seven, days a week for the next few months. In the event that I am unable to attend, Wayne has offered to not only host the event, but to run things in my absence. Thank you, again, Wayne!

If all goes well, I hope to see you all there. I look forward to meeting you and expanding the Vectorsphere!

1) Vectorworks User Group Meeting scheduled in the Phenix area for Saturday, June 5th. Time TBD. I am still looking for a volunteer to host the meeting. At this time, there are approximately six to eight attendees. It would be ideal to have access to a computer and projector so we can view some videos from our friends at Nemetschek.

2) Nemetschek would like to visit the Phoenix area with a continuing education seminar. If you would like to have our first meeting integrated with this event, then it has been suggested by the folks at Nemetschek that we hold off the meeting till late June. If you would like to have our first meeting tied to this event, please let me know soon. Otherwise, I will still plan on meeting with you on June 5th, and I will schedule the continuing education seminar for a later date.

3) Jonathan Pickup of “archoncad” has volunteered to be a guest speaker at a future meeting. Jonathan is a Vectorworks manual writer, youtube movie maker and online trainer. Also, the link to Jonathan’s web site has been fixed. Please check it out at http://archoncad.blogspot.com/.

4) I’m still looking for your thoughts on an Apple iPad version of Vectorworks… even if a limited version.
