First Revit User Group Meeting


This will be the first of what will be the spot for updates on Revit User Group (RUG) meetings for any and all Revit users of the greater Kansas City area. Because there have been numerous requests to start a Revit user group that covers all three Revit products - Architecture, Structure and MEP, a group of three of us have gotten together to do just that - to start a user group for the users and by the users, so that all members can have some say over what the group covers and how.

So come prepared to meet other users and us (Angela, Heathe and William) and our sponsors (no sales pitches), and we'll set the stage for what we plan to be fun, but informative and edifying get togethers. At our first meeting we will see who all shows, discuss these same plans for the group, come up with some future topics, lay some of the ground rules and form others based on whatever the group wants.

With that said, please do two things: first of all COME JOIN US!!, and second, please spread the word to as many folks in the area as you can.

Meet at: ITT Tech, 9150 East 41 Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64133 (816) 276-1400 from 5:30 - 7 p.m. local time. First 30 min to get signed in and grab a bite to eat & drink.Note that Google Maps pinpoints this address in the WRONG location on the map. ITT is across the street (Blue Ridge Cutoff) from the Royals stadium.
