Fifth Friday – Focus and Fun “September”
ECOTUC has started a new feature/activity for it’s members called Fifth Friday – Focus & Fun. With every few months having an extra Friday that’s not being used by the Windows Help Desk or the Linux Help Desk, we decided to see about having a topic that we can explore on a Friday afternoon and spend a little more time learning about it. Our FF-F&F begins at 1:00 p.m. and concludes around 3:30 p.m. or so. This will give some extra time for presentation, discussion, and questions vs. what time we have at our regular Monthly Meeting’s Programs. The topics will vary and depend on who volunteers to present on those Fridays and what they want to present.
For the “kick-off” FF in July 2016, we had a presentation on the new Windows 10; and in September we had a great turn-out for a panel presentation on “Backing up your data files”.
For our December 2016 FF, our theme was “Look, Up in the Sky. Is it a plane? Is it a bird? Is it Superman? No it’s “the cloud“.
For our March FF, our theme was “Picture This”.
For our June FF, our theme was “Googled It? There’s more to it!”
We can also tell you that the September FF will be called: ” ? “
These programs are basically for members as it’s one of the benefits of membership. But if you have a friend or family member that isn’t a member, bring they and have them get signed up as a member before the program. The $24 they spend on attending just one of our Focus and Fun Friday’s. will be money well spent. And along with just one program, they would also have access to future Fifth Friday programs, and all our other member benefits that make our membership dues come out to just about 6 ½ cents a day for all that we offer.
