Valencia Falls pioneers the use of computer based broadcasting. Sam Wexler, Region 1 Advisor, President of the Valencia Falls Computer and Technology Club and winter resident of Florida and summer resident in New York, is experimenting with providing added benefits to membership in his group. He also invited all groups within Florida and selected groups from around the country. If you would like to be on the mailing list for the next meeting announcement, send an email to email@example.com, informing him of your interest. Ordinarily the group does not function during the summer; however, Sam will be providing a most interesting program design, whereby he will have several experts in different areas of the country speak on the areas of their expertise. We intend to report back in the next issue of Reports, how this pilot program worked and how it might be utilized by groups throughout the country.
User groups throughout Region 5 had the opportunity to participate in a mass teleconference call. We are delighted to report that Judy Taylour (President, SCV Computer Club, CA and recipient of the FACUG Lifetime Achievement Award), David Steward (APCUG Board of Advisor Chair), Don Singleton (APCUG Director and former President), Hank Feinberg (FACUG Director and President, Rockland, NY PC User Group), Stu Silverman (FACUG Vice-President and APCUG Advisor), Sam Wexler (FACUG President and APCUG Advisor), Dave Whittle of “Coolhotnot” and many others participated the Monday, June 13, FACUG Membership & Leadership Development Forum meeting which discussed User Group issues.
This event was a forum style discussion involving what you want and exchange ideas with experienced User Group leaders, to get new ideas with different viewpoints. This concept comes from conversations with people during last two technology conference cruises, as well as the last three Town Hall meetings.
Meetings (programs, speakers, publicity, giveaways, venues)
Cooperative arrangements, partnerships, opportunities
User Group Associations
Communication (newsletters, Web sites, etc.)
For the last FACUG Technology Conference Cruise, Keystone Learning Systems provided access to their DVD classes for Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft Office 2010 and Windows 7, which are free to anyone in the Region 5, who uses one of the licenses they gave FACUG. If you are interested in taking any of these classes at no cost, send your name, email address and “Office 2007” or “Office 2010” to firstname.lastname@example.org. Windows 7 training is included in both options. There are only a limited available so it is the early bird that gets the worm.
