Meeting Reminder for August 2014

Meeting Reminder for Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Fellow RAM Members:

Tonight, we’ll give everyone the opportunity to view a couple of speakers from last year’s Autodesk University.  Listed via two modules, Autodesk CEO & President Carl Bass gave the keynote introduction and a couple of case experiences, & CTO Jeff Kowalski presented a very interesting take on not just learning, but unlearning and then relearning; a talk about mindsets.  These presentations total about an hour, but seem to contain…, well, we’ll let you decide.  Come, look and prepare to be enlightened. 

Also, you probably have received new email called “Meetup.”  We’ll talk about it as time permits.

Be sure to bring your friends and co-workers. Family members are invited. As usual, there will be light food and beverages. The meeting time is at 5:30 pm at the Human Services Building of the Henrico County Government Center at 8600 Dixon Powers Drive. …see you there!

Summary of July 30, 2014 Meeting

Fellow RAM Members,

The July meeting hosted a double take.  Starting with a WebEx presentation from Denver, Colorado, Chuck Jolin of Aerotek gave us a two-hour broadcast pertaining to Revit enhancements.   With a clear transmission and a little jury rigging, Chuck provided a very informative layout of the latest version of Revit.  I won’t mince words.   Revit is somewhat complicated with many available features.  Programs such as this give the participants an opportunity to gain an advantage on, not only the competition, but also a step up in the workplace.   Secondly, Chris Kitts, Blair Vick, Kyle Wiggins & Derek Morse from the local Aerotek office joined in.   Offering to guide us with our meeting layouts, Aerotek can offer front line information as to what employers are looking for.  So, if you’re so inclined, be sure to keep your resume updated and on hand for future meetings.

As always we finished up with friendly conversation between members.  Stay tuned to our website and email updates for our August meeting.

The meeting time is always scheduled at 5:30 pm at the Human Services Building of the Henrico County Government Center at 8600 Dixon Powers Drive.  They are held on the last Wednesday of each month.

Add Meeting Reminders to Outlook

As our our members know, RAM meetings are typically the last Wednesday of every month. We do occasionally shift the date due to holidays or severe weather – but we do strive to be as consistent as possible. It is always amazing how fast that last Wednesday sneaks up on you! So here’s a little something to help us remember. The link below opens an iCalendar file that when saved, will insert a recurring appointment into your calendar program. It works with Outlook and a variety of other calendar programs. All you need to do is:

* Using Internet Explorer, click the link, click Open to open the iCal file in your default calendar program and then save it.
* Using Firefox, right click the link and select ‘Save Link As’, then go to where you saved it and open the file.

Pretty simple!
