President's Report May 2004
19 May 2004
Hi all Computerbankers,
I have approached a couple of legal firms requesting advice on DGR
status for our organisation – these being Howie Maher Barristers and
Solicitors as well as Pitcher Partners; Howie Maher have offered to
help – I expect to hear from them in the short term.
Geoff Tregenza (Computerbank NSW President) has arranged a deal with
an insurance firm with regard to stock being distributed to state
branches around Australia. The stock includes PIII computers and laser
printers – branches will be able to distribute Linux machines on
high-quality hardware!! Thank you to Geoff for his efforts here.
State branches are quite busy with revenue-generating activities.
(Work for the Dole programs are underway in most states and are
running very well.) CBNSW are on the verge of securing a long-term
lease in Sydney which will accommodate their storage needs. This is
Computerbank volunteers in all states are putting in a great amount of
work and state branches are moving forward as a result. SA and VIC for
instance run two Work for the Dole programs – the hard work required
to get to that position is due to volunteer effort. This is
Computerbank's strength I believe – volunteers working together. NSW
has also received exposure in the press recently - the group are
making great inroads with regard to exposing Computerbank and their
activities to the outside world.
Our Vice-President, Steve Paynter, has resigned due to study
commitments. All the best Steve.
Hope all are well.
