Conference preparations are in full swing and we’re ready to head to the Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas January 2nd. Our entire Conference Team is working to put the finishing touches on what promises to be another banner APCUG event. We’ve got a full schedule of educational tracks, website and newsletter awards, and the annual Jerry Awards in addition to a spouse guest program and a Dip Contest that will definitely turn your head. Registration is open on the web at: http://www.apcug.net/register.html. Early Bird pricing is in effect, too….so make your plans now. See all the Conference details at: http://www.apcug.net/events/conference06
The Community Service part of our focus goes hand in hand with the highest award APCUG gives each year, The Jerry Award. Many of our member groups actually do some substantial projects, but they never submit them because they don’t feel the project is “as good” or “as big” as some others. But, any project you do is worth submitting. You’ve worked hard on it, so tell others. The purpose of the project isn’t to win an award anyway…it’s to give back to your community. There is nothing like the feeling you get when you’ve taught someone how to stay in touch with friends and relatives all over the country and see the joy it bring them, or to see the light in a child’s eye when you’ve introduced them to the wonders of a computer, or the surprise when you donate a refurbished computer to an organization that simply could not afford one. And the end result to you? You got out into your community…..you gave back….and that beats a plaque on the wall any day.
Meanwhile, APCUG is already steering toward 2006 and some very new and very cool
things are in the works for our members. So, get ready….get Conference
ready…..and come along for the ride.
