11.30.2006 : RegionFocus 20.4 now available - Online Member Record Management
RegionFocus issue 20.4 is now available here
Every organization has a few critical
personnel behind the scenes who make
all the difference.These are the guys and
gals who know the inside line.
Everything they touch turns to gold
through their incredible talents,
indefatigable energies, and buoyant
enthusiasm in the best and worst of
times. If an organization is lucky, one of
these people is an expert in IT and can
make your computer networks and
software applications function like a
well- oiled machine. PCA is fortunate to
have its own IT wunderkind in the
person of Jim Selders, who is arguably
one of the smartest guys on the National
Staff.To list all of what Jim has done
for the National Office and the
improvements/ applications he has
made in the way PCA supports its
members through information technology
would require an issue of Panorama unto itself.He has touched so many
different aspects of how we do business
that his influence and support will be felt
for years to come. For this issue of
Regionfocus, Jim describes the new
improvements he has affected at the
National Office for on-line records
management. These improvements
directly impact your PCA region, because
now your membership chair can manage
records of your region’s members with
direct access to the National Office files
24/7. For many region boards and
membership chairs who have experienced
varying degrees of frustration over the
past few years on membership files, this is
what you’ve been waiting for. Hopefully,
this article will serve as an entry point for
your region’s board and membership
chair on the fantastic improvements Jim
has made on our PCA’s IT support for our
regions. I encourage all Region boards to
thank Jim for all of his volunteer work and
dedication to the Club. We could not be
where we are today without him.
