Board minutes   May 26, 2015

The Personal Computer Club of Charlotte Board met Tuesday, May 26 at the Liberty restaurant. Attending were Galen Bolin, president; Bill Haney, vice president; and Bill Barnes, treasurer.

We wished happy birthday to the absent Maryanne Dailey.

Business needs being light, so was the discussion beyond confirming the meeting topics for the remainder of the summer. On June 1, the Board consented via email to move the BBQ picnic to August, away from the Independence Day holiday. After completion of networking upgrades, we will return to meeting in the same upstairs classroom as in April. Some program topics are listed below. If you have any suggestions or input, please contact

The Treasurer’s report will come next month.

Laptop vs tablet. Bring your favorite portable device and tell us why or why not.
Alternatives to buying Microsoft Office. We’ll discuss Google Docs and Microsoft online, and possibly others.

Security. This month will not be just a rehash of the common tips we’ve been giving out for two decades. We may include critical information for any PC or smartphone users; late model car, appliance, and home entertainment owners; air travelers; medical patients; and all others who interact with modern technology. Don’t miss it!
