I didn't think it possible for customers of a software company to be so passionately involved with the software products they use every day, but such is the case with AUGI members. Though AUGI has endured tough times and major transitions, amazing changes at Autodesk, and nine releases of Autodesk's flagship product AutoCAD, the organization has continued every year to provide Autodesk with valuable feedback to improve its products and it has continued to offer product users educational resources and enhancements, opportunities for networking, and a strong direct voice to Autodesk.
On a final note, I invite you to jump into the whirlwind of user networking by joining AUGI and getting involved. There's so much to learn about what you've got on your desk already and it all stands to either make you more money or make your work easier. I've said it a thousand times... a user group is not a television: we only get out of this organization what we put into it. Therefore, I encourage you to consider taking a leadership role in AUGI or to find some way to participate in it. We need dedicated officers and volunteers to maintain this organization as the technologies take new and dramatic turns.
AUGI. it's all about ... you!
