Join with your SEGD community to share some tips & tricks for CADtools. .

 This software is invaluable to so many of us – but everyone seems to use it differently. Some of us are just getting to know what CADtools can do – but even those of us who have used it for years are constantly uncovering new tips and tricks.

This will be a peer-led workshop. Participants are welcome to share their own tips and tricks for CADtools so that we can learn from each other. Get in touch if you'd like to present!

Snacks and drinks provided, all are welcome. 
Admission is free - but please RSVP here
 

Parking available in the garage off of 48th St.

See you on the 12th!

Welcome back to the KC SEGD Chapter! We think KC is ripe for new opportunities for design professionals, students and industry partners to connect at the intersection of branding & graphics and interiors & architecture – and we are excited to get the SEGD local Chapter back up and running.

We hope that through chapter events we can provide inspiration, education, and opportunities for networking, mentorship, and recruiting. We want to grow our community, and provide an opportunity for people to get to know each other, share their experiences, insights and ideas and learn from another.

We are hoping to have a first event in this last quarter of 2018 – so stay tuned. In the meantime, if you have suggestions on what type of events you would love to attend in 2019 please email us here: [email protected]
