This past Tuesday I had the pleasure of attending the first ever meeting of the North Mississippi SolidWorks User Group (NORMSWUG) in Tupelo, MS. All total there were 20 users in attendance which is an outstanding turnout for a first meeting. Byron Morgan has taken on the task to lead this newly formed group. He kicked off the meeting with a very nice PowerPoint presentation laying out all the goals for the group. I was impressed with how prepared Byron was for this meeting and I think that really showed throughout his presentation.
Next up was my presentation. We briefly talked about the upcoming SWUGN Summit in Nashville, TN before getting into the main topic. For this meeting I prepared a brand new SolidWorks Tips and Tricks presentation. The presentation is really a combination of things I have learned over the years and things I have learned from others. I have made the presentation available for download HERE if anyone is interested. We followed up the presentation with a general Q&A session which brought out some great topics for discussion.
I’d like to thank Byron and Kevin Tackitt, who is the assistant group leader, for inviting me over for their first meeting. Getting to meet new people is always one of the highlights of attending any user group event and this one was no different. It was a pleasure to meet everyone there and I really appreciate the nice comments I received from many of you after the meeting was over. Stay tuned…more to come!
