    Call for Assistance

    The key to any great user conference and/or group is user participation. In the past couple years we’ve noticed a steep decline in the number of people helping out with the conference.
    We absolutely appreciate the involvement from Bentley in our fine community. However, to be a user group we need your help. Our focus this year is to add fresh faces to our roster.

    Please consider this your official invitation to volunteer with your peers to make a better community!
