How to set up the project session
When the emails with the invites were sent out by Eventbrite the following people emails bounced and they have been removed from the invite list. Remember to let me know if you move company or change your email address
There were a few more bounces but those people have contacted me when they didn't receive the invite and provided new email addresses and the list has been updated.
There are currently 331 people on the invite list.
There also appears to be a glitch in the Eventbrite system as I have three members who are on the list but for some reason Eventbrite does not process them and they don't appear on the Eventbrite transmission log?

Oporo - BIM Enabled Facilities Management - Daniel Mofakam
BIM Hawk - Free Database and app from CIBSE - Carl Collins
Invites have been sent to the 263 registered members on the invite list at 9:15 on Friday 15th July 2016. As always one ticket per registered member on a first come first served basis.
I didn't receive my Invite to the LRUG meeting?
- First are you actually on the invite list?
- Check your spam filter and Junk mail, some firewalls will hold back emails.
- Have you moved company and changed email address?. Don't forget my balls are made of flesh and not crystal!, if you don't tell me then I don't know. So if you move company send me your new email address, and I will update the list so you get an invite to the next meeting.
- If you are on the list, I will check the eventbrite transmission log and if it's there then, it's lost in Cyberspace somewhere and if there is still room I will send you a manual ticket.
- Change your email where the protection is not so great like a Hotmail email account.
If you get a ticket and then need cancel the Eventbrite ticket to attend the LRUG Meeting?
What you need to do is log into Eventbrite / my tickets / current orders / view order / cancel order, then the next person on the waiting list if we are over the venue capacity will get the ticket.

The North group is managed by:
The Group are hoping that once the first North and South groups are set up and running then other groups might also like to form under the same structure. If you would like to organise another group please contact them.
Hopefully we can encourage some of their members to present a beginner guide to Dynamo at LRUG in the future.

I had lined up someone from Autodesk to present at LRUG in March 2016, but it appears he will no longer be working for them as a result of the Autodesk 10% reduction in staff announced last week.
Thank you to the LRUG members who have stepped up to the plate to present at the first Session in the 16th March Meeting
So we need to find another 5 to 6 people to do a Pecha Kucha Style 10 minutes session including discussion on "What Annoys Me About Revit" for a second session at a future meeting.
We also need as many members to be active members and request presentations and others to then offer to present them if they have knowledge to share. Now the web site is easier to maintain ALL offers to present, with a short summary of content will be placed on the web site and the members at the meeting will prioritise them.
If we ever get to the point where we have more offers to present than can be arranged in the scheduled meetings for a year, we can always arrange additional meetings to take place.

We did a similar session 6 years ago, its time for another, so I'm looking for 6 or more LRUG Members to volunteer to present their gripes about what annoys them about Revit, discuss how they work around the problem and who knows someone in the audience may have a better work around. If we can get more than 6 members we can take up a whole evening venting our anger or perhaps have another session later in the year.
Here are the presentations that were done at the second LRUG meeting in the 19th May 2010
What Annoys Me About Revit - Various Speakers
Download the Presentation slides as an Adobe file
Download LRUG PowerPoint Templates if you are going to create a presentation.The PowerPoint presentations from the 16th March meeting will be synced with audio recordings of the presentations than these will be uploaded here and sent to Autodesk for their consumption and hopefully addition to the improvement program.
I have my first volunteer in the shape of Carl Collins who's is taking on Global Parameters as his moan. Please email me with the subject matter you would like to rant about.
