The President's Message
by Tony Butka
I forgot that there was a price to be paid for being President; now I get to write two articles for the newsletter each month instead of one! Anyhow, thanks to all of you that voted, and thanks to the outgoing Board members, especially outgoing President Steve Schiffman. And an even bigger thanks to those that stayed on.
We have delivered on our campaign motto - coffee and donuts will be free, starting with the May meeting. Thank Carla for this one. On the business of the club front, it turns out that one of our members, Patrick Tantraphol, is a CPA in Pasadena. Your treasurer Steven Levine and I, accompanied by as many others as it takes to keep us honest (that's a funny, folks), will have met with him by the time you read this article. I may be an optimist, but we honestly hope to have a plan and implement it within 30-60 days. More will be revealed...
In the meantime, I want to deliver on the theme of your new Board -- let's have fun! Let me know about speakers you'd like to see, topics that we should cover in the main meeting and SIG's, stuff we can do with the website to get you there more often, and whatever else we should be doing. You can e-mail me at email@example.com. Remember, if you don't get involved, I'll turn the Duck loose on 'ya - right, Quackie?
We're also seeing if we can pull together the pieces for a Warp Expo event this summer. The committee is meeting, and we really need volunteers in order to make it work. Please consider helping out. There will be an update at the next SCOUG meeting.
I will, unfortunately, not be at the May meeting, and no, I'm not running away. I have to head north and watch my daughter graduate from Humboldt State; gotta see where all that money went. Sheridan George, our Vice-President, will act in my stead for this meeting. I'll see you all in June
