For a long time I've tried to get ArchiCAD user groups together in my sales territory - Western Canada and the Arctic. Face-to-Face meetings seem to be hard to keep going on a consistent and sustained basis. Perhaps the virtual world can assist.

Its a new year and so I'm trying a new tactic. I've set up group pages on Facebook and invite anyone who is interested in being part of a local user group to sign up. You can start a discussion, post examples of work, stay in touch or even announce a (gasp) pizza and beer war stories session.

The Groups I've established are:

Manitoba ArchiCAD User Group
Saskatchewan ArchiCAD User Group
Edmonton ArchiCAD User Group
Calgary ArchiCAD User Group
BC Interior ArchiCAD User Group
Vancouver ArchiCAD User Group
Vancouver Island ArchiCAD User Group

These should be searchable terms in Facebook.

I've also created a group page for the Arctic and encourage anyone reading this who resides up there to join and contribute something.

Its called:

Building Information Modeling (BIM) in the Canadian Arctic


Have at it.

Please.

If you build it they will come. Slowly, maybe, but they will come.

All these new user groups have more members. As of tonight:

Winnipeg ArchiCAD User Group - 1 member
Saskatchewan ArchiCAD User Group - 2 members
Edmonton ArchiCAD User Group - 9 members
Calgary ArchiCAD User Group - 10 members
BC Interior ArchiCAD User Group - 1 member
Vancouver ArchiCAD User Group - 12 members
Vancouver Island ArchiCAD User Group - 3 members


Also added a new group: Building Information Modeling (BIM) in the Canadian Arctic. 10 members.

I wrote private messages to a bunch of AC-Talk members inviting you to join a user group as well. Have a look.

Way to go. Let's find more.

are there really 1105 people using ArchiCAD in Western Canada? Guess I'd better update my records.
