CanBIM has recently announced the formation of a NEW International Committee, that will address the needs of the growing global marketplace for BIM, thus working to better connect its CanBIM Members and the Canadian Indsutry as a whole to the global market for BIM and advanced technologies. Scott Chatterton, CanBIM Board Member and Chair International Committee, brings a wealth of International ties and has already confirmed to International MOU's that put CanBIM in great position to remain connected to the International Community. The first MOU was formed with The BIM Institiute of Africa, through Executive Director, Vaughn Harris, in late November and the most recent MOU has been signed with the Revit Standards Foundation, through current Chair, Mark Wieringa.
Scott sees the future for CanBIM's International presence as very bright with many opportunities to collaborate and share information. CanBIM has already received a number of communications from other International groups looking to form similar relationships.
