Re: VDA at 90 was KillieTalk Digest V3 #1358
I have to agree that we should make them available as slides, cd and
download. There are a lot of great lectures/presentations that could be put
on a cd or download for members who are unable to attend the conventions.
Local clubs could help with the effort either by purchasing cds for loan to
members and putting the presentation togather. A lot of companied develop
classes on cd. I think we could put togather a cd to include in a new
member packet to let them see how the "newbe fish" can be raised. It would
be some work to put togather, but I think the benefit would be much greater
than the cost. I'd be happy to put some time into the project.
The AKA and local clubs have a wealth of information that can help the
members and the organizations both. How many people would pay to have all
the lectures at a convention on CD? Even if you attend, you can't see them
all, and this way you can.
Does the AKA have a technology comittee to decide what to direction to take?
