NetWIT 2014 Update and 2015 Preview
From the NetWIT perspective the 2014 GNR was a resounding success. All 5 sessions were filled to capacity plus some. There were approximately 275 people across the five sessions. There were also some ad-hoc activities for those that could not get into the sessions. Again, thanks to all who helped make the 2014 sessions a success. Also, thanks to all who attended, we certainly hope that you found these sessions informative.
We held our Annual Meeting at Lichtsinn RV, sixty NetWIT members attended. Ron was gracious enough to allow us to use his facility for our meeting / pizza party. The Lichtsinn staff gave the group a tour of the new facility. For anyone that has not had a chance to see the new Lichtsinn RV facility, do check it out when you are in Forest City.
I would like to thank all of those who helped with the NetWIT sessions during the 2014 GNR. In particular I am very grateful for those who volunteered to be presenters; their effort is significant and was well appreciated by the attendees. There were also a number of people that helped in other ways, you are also much appreciated.
Now onto the 2015 GNR sessions! First there is some exciting news; we are going to have a new facility for next year’s sessions. We will be able to use the Winnebago classroom facility which has comfortable chairs, air conditioning and a real presentation capability. This facility is larger, so we should be able to handle slightly larger groups with ease. We are looking forward to this new facility.
At the moment we are considering the following session mix during the rally: iPhone / iPad intro and intermediate; Android phone and tablet intro and intermediate; Windows 8 and a special topic for a total of 6 sessions. We also plan to present the 2 intro sessions during pre-rally to provide more opportunities for attending these popular sessions. This obviously depends on having sufficient presenters and helpers to make this happen. Watch for more information in the WIT Club News or on the NetWIT website.
Please plan to attend our sessions in 2015. If you are interested in helping in any capacity please contact the vice president, see the NetWIT website. We can use presenters as well as behind the scenes helpers, so please contact us if you wish to help out next July. GNR registration information will be out before you know it, so make your plans early.
No we will not be presenting everything upside down ;-)
Take care and travel safe.
