The purpose of SASUG is to promote the free exchange of information related to the use of SolidWorks among the membership of the user group.  It provides a forum in which the membership could assist each other in furthering their knowledge about and advancing their abilities in the use of SolidWorks.



· SASUG will be organized and operated completely through volunteering participants.

· Participants need not own a copy of SolidWorks.  

· SolidWorks Corporation, SolidWorks VARS, and SolidWorks business partners are welcome to participate as sponsors but are not eligible to hold elected positions.



· SASUG will elect a President from volunteering participants.  The President represents the group, keeps meeting minutes, and is responsible for organizing meetings, activities, and the expense account.



· SASUG will meet on a regular basis 4 times yearly. 

· Participants and Sponsors will be encouraged to host the meeting.

· Meeting Agenda and subjects should be planned in advance, preferably at the previous meeting.
