Updated September 2008 Meeting Information – Location Change & Matt Lombard!

In addition to the earlier announcement for the September 2008 Meeting.  I would like to add some exciting details for the meeting.

Matt Lombard will be in attendance at the meeting and will be presenting some of the What’s New in SolidWorks 2009 content.  Matt is the author of the SolidWorks 2007 Bible which is the best selling book on SolidWorks.  Towards the end of this year he will be releasing the SolidWorks 2009 Bible which I had a small part in as well.

Due to some scheduling conflicts, there will be a LOCATION CHANGE for this meeting.  The meeting will be held in the Dynetics Systems building which is located next door to the Dynetics CHQ building where we normally have our meetings.  Below is a map of the Dynetics campus showing you how to get to the proper entrance for the meeting.  I will post information on the front doors of the CHQ building in case there is any confusion.

I will be sending out an update via e-mail to everyone tomorrow morning.  See you at the meeting!
