The President's Message

April 2001

The nominating committee is making good progress in filling the club’s needs. See report elsewhere in this issue. I personally thank them for all of their efforts. We need more volunteers to run SIGs. We have been averaging at least one per week, which computes to a minimum of four plus per month. Please consider becoming a moderator.

We would like to compile a list of volunteers who would be willing to stand-in as a SIG leader when a given moderator cannot do the scheduled SIG because of illness or other personal demands that may arise. The more volunteers, the fewer SIGs they may be scheduled for. If we don’t find more volunteers, we may have to cut back on the number of SIGs presented each month. Please check with Ralph Duchacek or Helen Long if there is a way you can be of service. Remember, you don’t have to know everything about a given program. As a SIG leader, you may all learn more through attendee participation.

Now for a bit of good news, Jim Thornton has agreed to take charge of the 2001 garage sale for our July meeting. As you will recall, Jim was the coordinator of last year’s successful endeavor.

In keeping with the suggestion from members that we limit the size of our official pages including COMMAND.COM and EXECUTIVE REPORTS, to be no more than two pages, I think this should help. Enjoy!
