Area 4 IM Advisory Committee
Meeting Minutes – December 21, 2009
The Area 4 Information Management Advisory Committee met at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, December 21, 2009, via the Elluminate web conferencing application.
Members in attendance were Patricia Burch of Sampson County, Michelle Shooter of Robeson County, Tammy Kelly of Lenoir County, Regina Gardner of Jones County, and Susan Graham of the South Central DED’s office.
Adrian Gaskins, area information management agent, welcomed the group and provided an overview of recent area information management activities. He reported on the Mac rollout in progress, Ask an Expert widget activities, his Fliers on the Fly classes, his presentation at the Southeast District PA’s Association meeting, and a class about Robeson County web site management.
He then told committee members about his plans for classes in early 2010, including remaining Mac 10.6 preview sessions, a Mac orientation for new users, and an MS Office update.
Gaskins also asked committee members to ponder three topics and to make suggestions in the coming months – 1) a schedule for 2010 advisory meetings, 2) staffing to the fill vacancies on the advisory committee created by retirements and promotions, and 3) a variety of challenges Gaskins faces in conducting the area IM program.
During the advisory meeting, committee members asked Gaskins questions about ways to control junk and spam emails.
Finally, Gaskins thanked committee members for their input and support during 2009 and urged them to enjoy the upcoming holidays. He adjourned the meeting at 3 p.m.
