A New Revit 8.1 Build Posted

A New AUGI Board of Directors

For those of you who missed the big announcement, Autodesk Users Group International (AUGI) has a new Board of Directors including yours truly...

The board had its first meeting for the year in San Rafael, California at Autodesk Headquarters and what a buzz it was being inside the hallowed halls… let alone later visiting the Autodesk Useability Labs…

Anyways the board meetings started on Thursday 26th January, so I thought what better way to celebrate Australia Day is having a photo with the board holding a an aussie icon so dear to many of our hearts… the stubbie holder featuring the Australian flag and obligatory kangaroos. As an added bonus I got to meet Lynn Allen (AUGI Sweetheart and staunch AUGI advocate).
