President’s Letter: AUGI @ AU
The transition in seasons hits us all.
Whether you are headed toward summer or winter, this time of year brings a transition in the weather. Transitions continue with AUGI also.
Moving toward AU 2009
Some of you may be attending Autodesk University (AU) 2009. We have a full slate of events happening at this year’s event in Las Vegas.
AUGI Leadership Conference
Monday, November 30
1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.
The fourth annual AUGI Leadership Conference will be held on Monday, November 30 in association with AU 2009. Make sure your travel plans include an early arrival to Vegas to attend this conference! This powerful two-hour session is open to all registered AU attendees and will focus on the creation, building, and maintenance of AUGI volunteer communities and your Local Chapter. If you hold meetings now or would like to start a Local Chapter, come learn from the community experts at AUGI.
Wednesday, December 2
Wear your vintage and new AUGI gear on Wednesday, officially designated as AUGI Day at AU 2009. Wear your AUGI gear and get recognized for great prizes. Throughout the day, AUGI Volunteers and Board members will be on the lookout for members sporting their AUGI pride. If you are noticed you will get a “speeding ticket.” Bring that ticket to the AUGI Annual Meeting for an opportunity at a fantastic prize. Make sure to keep your AUGI gear on when you attend the AUGI Annual Meeting for extra opportunities to win prizes.
AUGI Top DAUG Challenge and Finals
Thursday, December 3
Compete whenever the exhibit hall is open
Finals at 12:00 Noon in the Expo Hall
Take the AUGI Top DAUG Challenge early and see if you can make it to the finals. Attendees can pit their AutoCAD knowledge and skill against other AU attendees at the AUGI Top DAUG Challenge. Open to all Autodesk University attendees, Top DAUG is a two-part competition consisting of both AutoCAD knowledge and drawing skills. The Top DAUG Finals, which has an entirely new format this year, will determine the Top DAUG for the coming year!
AUGI Beer Mugs at the Annual AUGI Beer Bust
No trip to Autodesk University is complete without attending the traditional AUGI Beer Bust. And no appearance at the Beer Bust is complete without a commemorative AUGI Beer Mug. These collectible mugs are a must-have souvenir from Autodesk University! Get yours by attending the AUGI Annual Meeting on Wednesday, December 2, at 5:00 PM.
