Judy and Pam

Manly Computer Pals stalwart, Judy Elias has been honoured as Northern Beaches Council’s Senior Citizen of the Year for 2023, and Pam Doughty has been recognised by her Club (AUSOM) for 30 years of continuous, dedicated service, editing their newsletter.

Senior Citizen of the Year

One of ASCCA’s great supporters, Judy Elias of Manly Computer Pals, was awarded the Northern Beaches Council’s Senior Citizen of the Year recently.  
For the last ten years, Judy has been an integral part and driving force for Manly Computer Pals for Seniors. Judy has always been an enthusiastic and energetic part of our face to face ASCCA conferences, and is often at our Clubs Forums championing her club and supporting other ASCCA members.  

Judy has introduced BriteSparx, an intergenerational program which partners secondary school students with senior learners to train in digital services and Chatterbox, a social program which creates opportunities for group outings.

Judy is also a volunteer presenter on Northern Beaches Radio hosting a technology educations segment, so if you’re in that neck of the woods, be sure to tune in!
Congratulations Judy, this award is well deserved! 

Recognising 30 years of support for AUSOM

Pam Doughty, a dedicated editor and researcher, is being honoured for her 30 years of contributions to AUSOM News. For three decades, Pam has consistently edited the publication, ensuring its quality and relevance. In addition to her editing duties, she has also written numerous articles for each edition, providing valuable insight and knowledge to its readers.

To recognize her achievements, members of AUSOM are hosting a commemorative presentation lunch in her honour later this month. ASCCA would like to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work and dedication of Pam over the years.
