Notes from October 12, 2007
Hillary did a terrific job presenting iPhoto '08 for more than an hour. She enlightened and entertained about 25 members and guests in the audience. And promoted her Open Lab on Saturdays.
Board members attending: Ron, Jerry (who brought refreshments from Dick Brennan), Bruce (as M/C.)
No formal Board meeting. Ron suggested contacting the man in the front row who spoke up so positively about the power use of Graphic Converter. Ron thinks we could persuade him--and other volunteers from the audience--to present how they use Graphic Converter at next month's meeting.
After the break, there were still more than 20 members and guests who asked lotsa questions. Ron and Jerry had good answers and information to share for at least 45 minutes right up to 9:00 pm. The door prize went to the "Graphic Converter guy." (I hope he was a member!) Jerry has one of the sign in lists. The other list of names was for Hillary who requested signatures in order to collect ADA for the Adult School.
Hillary specifically requested me to present this item to the board. She wants us to consider returning to the Adult School Mac Lab on the second Friday of the month. The class(es) previously scheduled for that evening apparently have not worked out. Hillary assured me that the new Adult School Principal, Bob Harper is a great guy and would welcome us--when we sign in as students--because this number would be an asset in their funding.
The PGAE catalog lists Hillary's Lab as 9:00 -- 3:00 every Saturday. See http://www.pgusd.org/pgaecatalog.html
Incidentally, the PGAE catalog does NOT list our CMoM user group.

The regular meeting consisted of watching Steve Job presentation on what new from Apple and a short intro from Ron B on PrintFolio software. All felt it went well.
Future meetings (and MC)
Susan T. has had to resign ( early Sat morning job). She has done a nice job.
The full treasurers report will be put online as soon as bank statement comes.
Bruce will work on grouping the topics on the list of "Help Needs" as developed by Jerry. For the list to be useful, it really needs to be a bit shorter. Questions raised about how to present "members-helping-members" and local businesses which service Macs.
Bruce will delete out-of-date and unconfirmed benefits from the CMoM website.
Ken will include in the monthly email a short note and link to one of the pages of the CMoM website. Also to be presented at beginning or during breaks at meetings.
As Ambassador, Jerry is working to find out what he can about what 'goody material'.

Mention of Hilary Bennett receiving gratis membership for contributions.

Next months program will be put together by Jerry and Ron. The topic to be an intro to the various "help forums" and "Apple/Mac discussions sites".
Programs suggested by Ron for
During the meeting Jerry brought up the question of a member forum. A guest suggested that we investigate "pbwiki.com". It apparently can be password protected, so we could limit access to members. The Board members will look at it to see how it might fit our interests. We may want to use it as an answer board, a sales/extra stuff site, etc.
We decided to have Jerry talk with David to see if CW would trade the Linksys ranger for some closet storage in the Canterbury Room.
Ken will make a contact list of members ( name, phone, email ). First Ken will poll the members ( with email ) to allow them to "opt out" of such a list.
Ken will check to see that David Powell is listed as our Ambassador on Apple's Mac site.
Ron will be MC next month. At that time he will see if he can "recruit" a Benefits person for CMoM.
Bruce will contact Eric Frith to discuss with him a CMoM CD that will be limited to just one or a few topics.
