The President's Message


James Brown

Well, the New Year has arrived. It is 2012. We hope the New Year brings all the good things you may envision. The New Year also gives us renewal and re-energizes us to move forward, make changes and rebuild with optimism, and renewed faith.

Your board will be reassessing our goals and our accomplishments and visualizing what we would like in the future of your computer group. If you have suggestions for the betterment of this computer group, we would be happy to hear of them.

First, there is a free Computer Support Webinar each Tuesday at 6 p.m. PST via the internet. The events will accept only 200 computer users from around the world. After a short presentation there is a free Q and A. Hours are 6 to 8 p.m.
