Letter from the President - November 2023

Hello AUGI members,

Every day we get opportunities to learn new things, both at work and in our personal lives. Skills like mastering a specific tool in our BIM/CAD software or learning how to better understand people we live and work with.

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” ― William Butler Yeats

This quote describes perfectly how education and training affect us. The purpose is to ignite a flame that will encourage us to keep striving for more. Compare this to CAD/BIM software, no one will ever know everything in a software program. The human minds that are using and programming the software are constantly creating and modifying the tools. I find it invigorating to open a new version of a software program and comb through it looking for new and exciting things! Which is perhaps why I have the career that I do. I’m sure all of you can find something about your career that invigorates you or creates that spark or flame inside of you!

In the next couple of weeks I will be headed to Las Vegas to attend Autodesk University, I imagine I’ll see a few of you there as well. I have high hopes that this year’s conference will offer a great learning experience for all that attend! For all of you that I only see once a year at AU, I look forward to seeing you soon!
