See you in the Fall. Stay tuned for dates and location.
The 2017 IBUG Spring Conference is over. Thank you to all those who attended. Your participation helps to make the IBUG community stronger and helps us continue our work helping our members learn about current and new software capabilities, new applications and new skills.
On behalf of the IBUG board, I want to thank Amanda Johnson who has been the President and Chair of IBUG the past few years. Her hard work has greatly improved IBUG and the Illinois CADD community. Amanda will be continuing with IBUG as the Outreach director working to improve our visibility in the community.
I also want to also want to welcome Jason Kofoot as the new Vicechair of IBUG.
We will be announcing the location and date for the Fall conference soon.
Chair Illinois Bentley User Group
Those of you who attended the IDOT CADD standards discussions with Robert Garret this Fall know that EnvisionCAD is the consultant to IDOT in developing new 3D CADD policies.
Three (3) people from any Consulting Firm, IDOT District, or Local/Municipal government agency register as a group, then a fourth (4th) person may attend for only $5.00.
On Tuesday August 9th registration will be open to everyone. If you plan to stay at the hotel IBUG has arranged special pricing. Rooms are being held for IBUG until August 8. You can still book a room at the special rate as availability allows after that.
In response to member requests, the IBUG conference committee has introduced early bird registration for the 2016 Fall IBUG Conference. Both early bird registration options include attendance to all 3 days of the conference, ALL of the workshops, and a guest pass to the Evening Social.
EARLY BIRD FULL CONFERENCE REGISTRATION - $850 (approx. $300 discount) Includes hotel accommodations for 3 nights.
EARLY BIRD REGULAR CONFERENCE REGISTRATION - $500 (approx. $190 discount) No hotel accommodations are included.
Although the official agenda has not been posted; early bird registration is OPEN NOW! The early bird registration will close 3 days prior to the opening of general registration to allow early bird registrants the first opportunity to select desired workshops.
The 2016 Fall IBUG Conference agenda will be very similar to the 2016 Spring Conference agenda. Additionally, a 3-day “Introduction to MicroStation & GEOPAK” workshop for students and new (or old) engineers to learn the basics. In an effort to keep you up-to-date, IBUG will once again be hosting a session on the status of the IDOT CADD Standards as well as “Open Discussion Sessions” for attendees to offer input.
IBUG has made arrangements with The Hilton/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center to offer conference rates 3-days before and after the conference. Bring your family to work, golf, and play before the summer is over! We hope to see you there!
