We've got a fantastic meeting this month, so I hope you can all attend.
First, and most importantly, we're having elections for our executive board. Our nominees were announced at the last meeting, in May. The nominees are:
At the beginning of the upcoming meeting, the nominees will describe their leadership skills, and the group members will elect them to the two new Chair positions:
Chair: In charge of organizing presentations and guest speakers, communicating with group members, updating the group website, and scheduling meetings with SolidWorks HQ.
Vice-chair: In charge of securing meeting venues and building membership/retention, ordering food for meetings, and other administrative duties.
These positions will be elected separately, but should be prepared to work closely together. (Remember, one or both of these officers will get free admission to SolidWorks World as long as they are in office.)
After the elections, Eman Kim of Trimech will give a brief presentation on the essentials of surfacing. But pay attention! After the presentation, the group will be randomly split into teams, and will face off in a Surfacing Model Mania Challenge! The winning team gets a very special prize, and the title of FredSWUG Surfacing Czars. (Take a look at http://www.the-blueprints.com/ to get an idea of what the contest models might be.)
As always, please RSVP, and logistig info is available on the homepage.
