     HTEC Network              July Update

     8th Annual CNC Educator Training Conference at Dunwoody College          of Technology, July 21-24, 2014  

Another record-breaking HTEC Conference!

178 Educators & Partners came to help celebrate Dunwoody College of Technology's 100th Anniversary as we gathered for the 2014 Americas CNC Educators HTEC Training Conference in Minneapolis.  The weather was perfect all four days, especially for the Tuesday evening dinner-on-the-river cruise.

Seven Monday Workshops: AutoDesk, Immersive, Mastercam, NIMS, Sandvik Coromant & ToolingU/SME.  Eric Chester was our conference opener. 

20 CNC Technology Presentations and 33 Partner/Exhibitors filled the conference. Four excellent tours, Proto Labs, RMS, Zeiss and Caterpillar.  On Wednesday evening at the ICON Thearter we saw Jeremy Bout and the Edge Factor Show and all education attendees received a one year subscription to the new Edu Factor Library of great manufacturing videos.  

Many thanks to E.J. Daigle, Brian Nelsen, Hope Riska, Jane Bohl and the entire Team at Dunwoody for all their hard work and hospitality.  

Martin Koch gave us a brief preview of next year's conference at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, CA.  Circle your calendar and plan to attend.  The dates are July 27 to 30, 2015 and will include a tour of Haas Automation
