    Sick and tired of the same old user groups? Wish you had a group who really understood what you were working on and could help you overcome some of your hurdles? Lets admit it: we all need sounding boards, but how do you find those people? In this roundtable session, we share with you how a small group started meeting monthly over beers to discuss our troubles with BIM, and we were shocked at the outcome: pure Guinness...I mean genius. BIM was always designed to improve collaboration, but no one would have thought that it would break down barriers in the local market and help all of us improve our workflow. Conversations often get spirited but also lead to breakthroughs that may have never occurred without an open mind. Our group has made several innovative breakthroughs and in this session, we show you how. Every local market is different, so collaborating with those in your market is key. Come join us as we discuss how it is easy to start a local user group and break down barriers and start collaborating.
