Our History

From a gathering of users at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, California as "NAAUG" (the North American AutoCAD User Group) to worldwide connections as AUGI our members have driven changes in technology, expansion of software features and user to user connections in the design environment for AEC, Infrastructure and Manufacturing.

Recounted here is information about how we got started, what has been accomplished through the years, what the struggles of the organization have been and who has guided our expansion by serving on the Board of Directors.

With the exception of the meticulous notes taken by our secretaries (regarding motions, discussions, agenda items and votes at the Board of Directors meetings), the History of the organization is recorded here by the past presidents. We are grateful to the past presidents that have served and recorded these first 20 years of milestones and achievements.
