November

I hope this message finds you all in good health and high spirits. We’ve had a fantastic month at ASCCA, and I’m thrilled to share some exciting updates with you.

First and foremost, I’d like to extend my gratitude to those who joined us virtually on Teams to attend our recent Annual General Meeting on 10th October. It was a great success, and your support was appreciated.

I’m thrilled to introduce two remarkable individuals who have recently joined our Board of Directors – Janice Tong and Dallas Parkes.  Dallas, with her wealth of experience, is stepping into the role of Treasurer, as well as the position of Company Secretary. Janice brings to ASCCA a passion for both technology and humanity and has been working in the media/IT industry for over two decades.  Their dedication and expertise will undoubtedly strengthen ASCCA’s mission and our commitment to supporting seniors through technology.  

As we welcome new faces, it’s also important that we bid farewell to Susan Jensen, our outgoing Board Secretary, who has been a pillar of strength and a passionate advocate for ASCCA’s causes during her term. We owe Susan a debt of gratitude for her unwavering dedication. She’s been instrumental in ensuring our Annual ASCCA Competitions are executed flawlessly, maintaining the highest standards year after year.  Susan, we thank you most sincerely for your incredible contribution to ASCCA.

At the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting, we were all entertained for quite some time by ASCCA’s Competition Convenor, Susan Jensen, who diligently profiled the finalists and winners, with accompanying visuals of their entries, of all the categories.  The number of entries in some categories especially, gave rise to the conclusion that ASCCA’s Competitions remain very popular and despite the fact that Susan has relinquished this role together with that of ASCCA Board Secretary, we must seek another willing person to fill Susan’s now huge shoes.  She has certainly set the bar high in convening the competitions, but has kindly offered to mentor / tutor anyone willing and interested in taking on this role for the coming year.  Please contact me personally in the first instance to discuss what is entailed.

As we move forward, let’s continue our journey together in empowering seniors through technology and reducing the digital divide. Your Club’s active involvement and support are what make ASCCA the dynamic community it is today, with the promise of an exciting year ahead.

We trust you enjoy this month’s eNewsletter, please forward it to your members and friends.  And, as always, feel free to reach out if you have any questions, ideas, or suggestions. We value your input and look forward to another month of growth and learning together.
