It has come to my attention that there has been some confusion in regards to who sponsored last night’s Revit User group meeting. This confusion has caused some problems and upset several people. The Revit Professionals of Tampa Bay Group is a private group sponsored by Advanced Solutions (An Autodesk Reseller) and is not a TBAUG sponsored group.
The Revit Professionals of Tampa Bay group is designed to bring Revit and BIM Professionals from the greater Tampa Bay area together. This group will enhance the Revit community by providing a forum for The Revit Professionals of Tampa Bay group is designed to bring Revit and BIM Professionals from the greater Tampa Bay area together. This group will enhance the Revit community by providing a forum for professionals to:
-Network with other Professionals
-Share experiences and project examples
-Enhance your Revit and BIM knowledge
-Hear from industry experts
The Revit Professionals group will be organized and sponsored by Advanced Technologies solutions, a local Autodesk Partner since 1984. We are commited to enhancing the design community through our professional support, training, consulting. The Revit Professionals group is just one example of our commitment to our peers in the design community.
As it is a private meeting I have no say in who they will or will not allow to attend. However, I take full responsibility for not making it abundantly clear on the post for the meeting that this was an event not affiliated to TBAUG or AUGI directly. I apologize to anyone that has been affected by my lack of clarity.
Because I wish to provide my users with all possible vehicles and opportunities for learning and networking, I was quick to post the event details and broke my own rule for clarity. Since I was late to the meeting I didn't have a chance to speak to the group and again I fail to make this clear. I can only promise in the future, that all meetings, events & activities will be clearly marked to show whether or not these are sponsored or directly affiliated to TBAUG.
Furthermore, I did provide a TBAUG shirt to giveaway in order to show that TBAUG is interested in working together with everyone who is willing to share their time & knowledge with our CAD Community.
I appreciate & welcome the support all of our sponsors and autodesk reseller provide our group. I do not want anyone to feel in any way alienate or exclude any of our TBAUG Meetings.
I will be hosting a TBAUG meeting soon and hopefully this in no way will tarnish the reputation that I have been trying so very hard to create for the Tampa Bay Autodesk User Group.
