I’ve grown up reading Tom Clancy and probably most of you have at least seen Red October, so this book caught my eye when browsing used books for a recent trip. It’s a fairly human look at what’s involved in sailing on a Trident missile submarine…
Last Thursday we had the monthly meeting for our local PASS chapter. I would normally try to get the recap out a bit sooner. This month, I intentionally delayed the recap. We had a plethora of things going wrong at this meeting that it left the leadership a bit befuddled.
We did get to participate in a great presentation – let’s take nothing away from Steve Jones from SSC. He presented to us on the Modern Resume and he was a trooper about it. For me that is a hallmark of somebody that is a seasoned speaker, is humble, and has leadership skills. I think these skills tie together rather nicely and they manifest themselves pretty well when things don’t go as planned.
I appreciate all of those who attended virtually and in person. I am thankful to Steve for taking time and altering his travel plans to adapt for us so we could hear him speak.
As a result of this meeting – look for changes to be coming from the S3OLV User Group. Charley and I discussed this on Friday and decided to do a few things differently. We have to discuss further how to go about some of these changes. As a preview, look forward to the following:
- Site Change – this will help us better advertise and stay on top of the updates (something I have been doing very poorly at over the past couple of months). With the change, we will be exploring the use of a Blog to manage the site along with allowing members to post articles to the Blog.
- Newsletter – we want to get more info out there. One possible item to be included in the newsletter would be a Member Spotlight. We are working on other ideas to go with the Newsletter.
- We will also be changing the invite and reminder process.
We really feel that these changes will make a difference for our group. We also realize that these changes will take more time and more planning – but they are for the good of the group.
Let us know what you think!!
