Thanks to Stephanie Beaver, ASU-MH recruiter, for her September 5th presentation on class availability at ASU. Some of which might be of interest to some of our members. 

There are still openings for a tutor session at 11:00 AM on October 3rd. If you are interested in a one on one learning session, please send me an email well in advance of the meeting date.

The Board has approved changes to Director Positions by removing the position of Photography Director and adding an Education Director to be filled at this time by Debbie S. There are some associated changes to the Bylaws, which will require membership approval. 

Please keep in mind that current member dues for the 2020 membership year are payable after October 1st and need to be paid by December 31st to take advantage of the $15.00 rate. Dues for current members paid January 1st or later are $20.00. New members are required to pay the $20.00 rate for the first year of membership.

                                        September General Meeting Minutes

                                               By Sue Seils, TLCUG Secretary


The group meeting began at 2:00 PM.


Total attendance was 50 people, including our speaker.


President Tom welcomed the members and announced the loss of a very active member, Kip B., who gave his time to help members at the help desk.

The treasurer’s report was given.

There was no tutor program today. Tom announced that we did hold a class on YouTube today. It was led by Debbie S.

Tom mentioned that we are adding Debbie S. to the Board as Education Director. We have removed Jerry W. as Photo Gallery Coordinator. The Board approved of these changes.


Our speaker for today’s meeting was Stephanie Beaver, AUU-MH recruiter. Using the ASU-MH website, she talked about the newest programs at ASU, which now offers on-line classes as well as on campus. There are many classes that may interest people other than the traditional students. These include non-credit classes taught by community members. She mentioned that those aged 60+ can take regular classes at no tuition, but would have to pay a class fee. She also shared with us some of the community programs (some at cost, some free) offered on campus. She answered questions from the members.


There were no guests at the meeting.


The winner of the monthly drawing for a certificate to the Bookworms Café was Barb P.


The meeting adjourned at 2:45 PM.
