Meeting Reminder: Wednesday, October 25, 2017

CV CAD Group,

At last month’s meeting we reviewed AUGI’s annual salary survey. It hasn’t really changed much over the past few years with aspects of civil engineering topping the list. The attendees gave their input on changes in their own personal workplaces as well as what we may expect in the near future. Because of last month’s interest, we’ll briefly continue this discussion; what adaptations our club can consider making to accommodate the changes; why some companies are closing while others are thriving and most are remaining consistent.

The primary topic for this month is “Profiles in AutoCAD 2018.”  While most offices use a general setup for all employees, there is an advantage having AutoCAD run the way YOU would like. The topic is from this month’s issue of AUGI World Magazine.

We’ll also entertain suggestions for our annual Christmas Party in December.

Be sure to tell your friends and co-workers. All interested parties are invited. We’ll have light refreshments on hand. Join us at 5:30 pm at the Henrico County Government Center (Human Services Building). The address is 8600 Dixon Powers Drive, Henrico, VA 23228

Questions? – call us at 804-424-0185. My email address is mathmajor3@msn.com
… See you there!

Meeting Reminder:  Wednesday, September 27, 2017

CV CAD Group,

Stepping outside of the CAD circle, at the August meeting we talked about the biggest event of the year: The 2017 Great American Eclipse that took place on August 21. We shared some photos of the event and our experiences. The Richmond area saw nearly 90% coverage of the moon over the sun. I personally am an avid astronomy buff and decided to travel to my old stomping grounds in South Carolina to view it in totality. I was lucky to get some pretty good shots which everyone liked. Afterwards, we went outside to view the sun and moon through my telescope (which I just happened to have with me). The comradery of the event in Columbia reminded me of the meetings we have here. It was the experience of a lifetime. I can’t wait for 2024.

This month we’ll check out the latest AUGI World magazine and review their annual CAD Salary Survey. Over the years the categories of this survey have expanded to include not just AutoCAD, but many of its vertical platforms. It’s the 16th annual survey and it helps us to determine where the CAD community is heading, the type of work being done and the demands of the future. This survey contains information that just may surprise you.

Be sure to tell your friends and co-workers. All interested parties are invited. We’ll have light refreshments on hand. Join us at 5:30 pm at the Henrico County Government Center (Human Services Building). The address is 8600 Dixon Powers Drive, Henrico, VA 23228
