AU 2006 LUG Offer

As my role as AUGI LUG Manager, I had the privilege of annoucing AUGI's "AU2006" Special Offer to LUG's (Local User Groups).

Below is a copy of the letter that was emailed out to all LUG Presidents...

Dear Local User Group President

It is AUGI's pleasure to report that once again we have negotiated a deal with Autodesk regarding free passes to Autodesk University (AU).

An overview of the program is as follows:

When three (3) paying members of a local user group indicate during the Autodesk University 2006 full conference registration process that they belong to a specific local user group, the President, or a member designated by the President, of that local user group will be awarded a free full conference registration pass with hotel accommodations to this year's conference.

However, I must stress to get this to work effectively we need members to use their official User Group Name. In order for me to review the list of eligible members, I require as many members as possible to use the same naming convention as possible to help determine which groups will be receiving a free pass.

After the list has been reviewed, I will contact the indicated user group President to determine whether to apply a credit to a registration or to send a pass code good for a new registration. The responses sent back to me will be collated and forwarded to Autodesk.

I stress again, I need your cooperation for this program to work. Hoping to hear from you soon regarding this matter.

Cheers Bill Adams
Secretary, AUGI Board of Directors
LUG Manager
See you @ AU2006

So what does this mean for our group - well if 3 of our members register for AU, the free pass could be given away as a special door prize/membership incentive or whatever...

a topic for discussion at the next meeting
see you there...
