BIM BOP 2019

https://arch.usc.edu/calendar/bim-bop-2019  (website in-progress)

It is BIM BOP conference time of year again, specifically Friday, June 28th,
at USC in Los Angeles, CA. I had designed a beautiful handout, but could not
figure out how to attach it to this email. So, in text only, here is a summary
of the event.  There is a nicer looking version on the website. You can also
email me, Karen Kensek, kensek@usc.edu if you have specific questions.

MOST IMPORTANT FACTS:  best BIM conference of the year with great speakers,
free lunch, and low price (one day, 8 am – 5 pm – $55). Truthfully, I have
only received excellent comments about my last 12 BIM conferences.
