Meeting Agenda For March 2015

March 3 - Good News re AMD

Many 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 isn’t a one of us who doesn’t 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 with Tugnet

Meet your friends and enjoy dining with them at California Pizza Kitchen this Monday evening.

It’s lovely 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

As 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.
