From the President’s Desk

Jennifer Willcox

In early April, I had the pleasure of attending the Linkwest conference as a member of the Walpole Community Resource Centre team, that was the first CRC in the State-wide Network to become a member of ASCCA back in 2007, when the Walpole Seniors Computer Club was born.

It was a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with past colleagues and make new connections that will benefit ASCCA moving forward. The conference was a huge success and I was pleased to be a part of it.

During the conference, I had the honour of presenting a Certificate of Appreciation to the outgoing CEO, Jane Chilcott, acknowledging the strong connection and partnership that has existed between Linkwest and ASCCA over the past 5 years. This partnership has been invaluable to our organisation and ASCCA is grateful for the support and collaboration that we have received from Jane in particular and Linkwest in general – a connection that will no doubt continue into the future. 

Whilst in Perth, I was afforded the opportunity to deliver the “Taking Control of your own Hereafter” workshop at the City of Belmont, an inner Perth city suburb.

The workshop was attended by a group of very interested local residents. Some lovely feedback was received from some of the participants, who found the workshop to be insightful and thought-provoking. It was another opportunity to fly the ASCCA flag and make a positive impact in the wider community, giving practical examples of the technology aspect in everything we plan and do in our daily lives – and beyond.  It is hoped that some of the attendees will be interested in attending planned technology training sessions in the near future – perhaps even a new ASCCA Club will result!

On a personal note, I would like to extend my warmest wishes to all the mothers and grandmothers in our ASCCA community. As we approach Mother’s Day, I want to recognize the invaluable role that mothers and grandmothers play in our lives. Your love, care and guidance shape us into the people we are today, and we are grateful for everything you do. I hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day, filled with love and appreciation from your families and friends.

Thank you all for your continued support of ASCCA. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any member of the ASCCA team.
