Notice of December 2019 Meeting and AGM


(C&BAV Incorporation Registration Number: A 13467S)

ABN: 65 553 575 021

Greetings friends

*** Next Vicaug Meeting ***

Combined with the Outer Eastern AutoCAD Users Group

Only a week or so to go!

A quick reminder: the next Victorian AutoCAD Users Group meeting is on

7:30pm Thursday

12th December 2019


We have moved to a new home at

The TLC Church, 265 Canterbury Rd Bayswater North

(Melways 64 H1)

Because it’s the Annual General Meeting, we’re sending out the notice a little early. See the image below for directions:

If you’re coming along Canterbury Rd from the city, cross over Bayswater Rd and make a U-turn at the first set of traffic lights (Ramsay St) and TLC church is about 100m on your left. There’s ample off-street car parking at the venue.

We’ll be meeting at this new venue for the foreseeable future.



Annual End of Year Barbecue and Social Night

combined with the Annual General Meeting

To celebrate the end of another year and the coming festive season, it’s time for our annual BBQ. Rather than a formal presentation, we’ll be indulging in a superb dinner featuring nibbles, BBQ meat, salads, desserts and wine, beer and soft drink. A great opportunity to meet up with kindred spirits and chat about AutoCAD and whatever else comes up. We’ll set up a computer and video projector and show some interesting movie clips from around the internet. If you’ve got any favourites that might interest the group, please bring them along on a USB stick (G-rated only please – we are meeting in a church!).

Also, I don’t know how we do it, but we’ll squeeze in the Annual General Meeting to elect office bearers and set membership fees for the coming year. At present, the prevailing view is that we keep fees at zero for existing long term members (that is, basically everyone who’s been coming to meetings over the last year or three) and keep the “joining fee” of $60 for new members, but that is subject to discussion and approval at the meeting.

We will call for nominations for Vicaug office bearer and committee positions at the meeting, but if you can’t attend and would like to nominate, please let us know by return email.

If you’re a current member, the BBQ is free, otherwise we ask that you pay $15 to cover the cost of food and drink.

And, of course…

Lots of Discussion of Interesting Stuff!

“Round table” discussions of any AutoCAD problems you might have (and hopefully the solutions!) plus the usual News, AutoCAD Tips and friendly chat about whatever we find interesting.

Bring along your USB memory keys etc. and you can get a copy of some of the items demonstrated.

All Welcome!
