I have been a member of HAL-PC since 1992.  My two boys ages 6 and 7 at the time are now in the IT field because of HAL-PC.
Neither I nor my boys, now 27 and 28, (still single) will ever be able to repay HAL-PC for such a very successful computer career that began here for them.
On behalf of my boys and myself I’ll do the best I can to do my part in volunteering for such a great organization and it’s consistently kind and helpful members.  In any case, I can promise that you’ll be seeing me in the future at HAL-PC in some capacity or another.  To HAL-PC and it’s members: Numbers 6:24-26.

Thank you.

Please vote for me so I may continue to represent you on HAL-PC’s Board of Directors (BOD). 
I have served as a member of the BOD since I was first elected in 2007.  Each year has presented its own challenges and successes to HAL-PC.  I have been a part of the team looking for and participating in solutions. 

There are all different kinds of volunteers from Special Interest Groups (SIG) Leaders, committee members, Front Desk volunteers answering phones and technical questions, callers to remind members or users about expiration dates, etc., that make HAL-PC work.  I have the time to volunteer to work as a member of the BOD and to make my contribution to HAL-PC, giving me the opportunity to help in some way the return of classes being conducted at HAL-PC’s Headquarters and the increase in the number of presentations.

Thank you for your vote.
