October 2019 Committee Meeting
MAIN POINTS FROM THE OCTOBER COMMITTEE MEETING
Our leased photocopier/printer is set up for Windows; FujiXerox say a patch is needed to allow connectivity to Apple devices. In the meantime we will investigate if we can use the small Canon printer wirelessly with iPads and Macs.
We have sent (belated) congratulations to Brian Cameron as the new Top of the South Area Representative.
The committee discussed two topics raised in an email: (a) concern about our equipment being loaned to members for use elsewhere; AND (b) ability to use Team Viewer software only to be available to the Membership secretary. Other software can be used if other remote access to the office computer is needed.
The Treasurer’s statement of receipts and payments for September and year to date was received.
The Education report for September was received. A tutor meeting was held at the beginning of October; there was discussion about how to cover course topics requested by members. A special luncheon for tutors/committee was raised – date and venue to be decided at the next committee meeting.
Technology report—the new Windows 10 computer has been installed in the office by Affordable Computers. It is much faster, and our files and software have been successfully transferred over.
There are currently 152 paid up members (including the Life members) for the 2019/2020 year.
It was resolved that a new role of Assistant Membership Secretary be appointed from the new Committee.
Our President, Secretary and Treasurer will shortly be meeting with representatives from the Toy Library to discuss topics such as insurance.
After a brief discussion it was decided that future committee meetings will be held on the 2nd Monday of the month.
