2001 director's message

The 2001 National Collegiate CADD Conference was entitled "A CADD Odyssey." As technology advances, our need for communication grows. The desire to stay on top of software and facility management tools is becoming a necessity. The computer industry has the ability to move faster than we do, if we let it. That is why the NCCC is a success. This conference allowed its attendees to make contacts that go beyond the presentations or vendor booths. There is a camaraderie that exists and grows every year.

The keynote address was memorable. Mark Brown, a Purdue University alumni and NASA astronaut, spoke about his experiences in the space program.

We assembled a fine roster of speakers for the break-out sessions and invited a best-ever vendor show. And we were committed to fulfilling your need to communicate with your peers by having a wide variety of subjects for the the various break-out sessions.

Join us again for a future CADD Conference.

Mark Townsend, Purdue University
