A few minutes later, I recall a blazing flash of light. Then fade to black, no sense of time, no sense of space. Next thing I know, I'm happily counting votes (for other people) at the March SCOUG meeting. At least I'm not in Redmond...
Maybe It Was Swamp Gas
Seriously, I didn't run for office this year because I felt it was time to share the joys of running the best OS/2 user group in the country. I'm very proud of what we have accomplished in the past several years. We've essentially sustained our membership at a time when user groups of all types are falling apart as quickly as the Internet is growing. We had a very successful Open House in our first attempt. We sponsored and played a successful role in Warpstock 97. We have an excellent newsletter and web site.
You should be proud!!!!
I know I am. I'm also looking forward to the future. The new board and officers are a fine group of people and together they provide a well balanced mix of new and old leadership. Also, we are in a position to continue the development of our web site and newsletter. These two resources are treasure troves of information for our members and the OS/2 community as a whole.
Personally, I plan to continue as an active participant in SCOUG. I'll be taking over the reins of the Programming SIG from Terry. I hope to continue the high quality of SIG meetings he has established.
I want to thank Mia, Carla, and Randell for all of their support and help. Without them, I would have accomplished significantly less during my term as president. I also want to thank everyone else that helped - Steve, Terry, and Mark just to name a few.
It was gratifying to hear several of those running for the board offer their candidacy as a "thank you" for all that they have received from the club. This has always been what the user group is about for me - helping each other learn about (and enjoy) OS/2.
