February 2019 Committee Meeting

Main points from the February Committee Meeting

The national SeniorNet AGM and Symposium will be held in Palmerston North on May 8th & 9th. It was decided that Gail and Maureen would attend on behalf of Motueka.

Committee members were reminded that the Top of the South (TOTS) regional meeting will be hosted by Marlborough

Sounds SeniorNet this year. It will be held on March 7th in Linkwater. Gail will advertise this to all members to encourage attendance.

The January Financial Report was presented.

Uptake of courses advertised for term one is uneven, but there has been enthusiastic response for some of the interest based courses. We have some outside presenters this term, and in particular the beginning of a series of sessions facilitated for us by Age Concern.

All Windows 10 laptops and PCs at the rooms have been updated to the latest version 1803.

An electrician is to be brought in to repair a broken sensor on one of our outside security lights, and to fix a blinking fluorescent tube in the kitchen.

There have been some annoying troubles with the SNAP reporting system method of communicating to national SeniorNet the type and number of courses completed by our members. Clive will contact Jude, administrative assistant at the national office, for a set of clear instructions on using the software.

The committee approved the purchase of a Chromecast dongle to be used with our new Smart TV.
