Agenda For March 2015
March 3 -
Good News re AMD
have heard Judi Delgado, Executive Director of the Discovery
Eye Institute, in the past so therefore know what a wonderful
speaker she is. I have invited her back to share with us the
recent reports of some breakthroughs in the future treatment
of AMD (Age Related Macular Degeneration). I suspect
there isnt a one of us who doesnt know someone
affected by this terrible disease.
We all have devices with a screen that we use every day,
probably many times every day. Therefore, it is particularly
important for us to be aware of how to take care of our eyes
in the very best ways. She will have this information for
us and a whole lot more.
This is a meeting when you should bring as many friends (and
family) as possible because we want everyone to make every
effort to avoid this disease by using some fairly simple precautions.
March 10 - Dine
your friends and enjoy dining with them at California Pizza
Kitchen this Monday evening.
when our meembers come together in a chosen restaurant and
enjoy eating together. Plus, it creates a donation for our
treasury. Now tell me, what can be easier than this?
March 17 -
A New Office Accelerator
you know, there are few companies who reach out to work with
end users anymore, let alone user groups. Therefore, I was
delighted to hear from Chris Furgis of Baseline Data Systems.
He was inquiring whether TUGNET was still a user group!
Of course, I replied right away and his return message told
me he thinks it would be fun for him to come show us his new
product. Granted, Office Accelerator, an email marketing
tool, is more geared to businesses.
It is a great tool for your email system with
a full featured contact manager, shareable phone book and
calendar, and subscription based. Chances are there will be
a special offer for TUGNET attendees. It probably seems like
overkill for many of us, but there are advantages most don't
think about until the entire story is known.
I hope you will come to show support and appreciation
to him, proving that yes, TUGNET is still a viable organization,
whether you think you would ever use the product or not. The
fact that he is willing to take his evening to come to our
meeting warrants our attention. I do hope you will plan with
me to give a warm reception to one who still believes in us.
