Vice President Changes

We greatly appreciate Terry Steege’s willingness to to help with the business activities of the Glenside Color Computer Club by accepting the nomination and running for the GCCC 2020-21 office of vice president. It is, thus, with regret that we accept Terry’s resignation for health reasons.

As per the GCCC bylaws, which state that the Glenside Board of Directors shall appoint a resource for such a vacancy, the BOD met this evening and have appointed John Mark Mobley to fill the open position for the remainder of the 2020-21 term. Mr. Mobley has graciously accepted the appointment with the sincere appreciation of the board. We welcome John Mark, who has significant previous leadership experience with GCCC.

The GCCC Board of Directors request that members respect Terry Steege’s privacy during this time.

Glenside Club Meeting: Thursday May 20, 2021 @ 7:30PM

It’s less than 6 months until The 29th “Last” Chicago CoCoFEST! 2021, and I’m more positive than last month we’ll be able to meet in person (I’m even cautiously optimistic our Canadian friends will be able to join the festivities).

We’re entering the Summer months, so the meeting should be somewhat brief. We’ll share a few CoCoFEST! planning updates and take up any new member business.

Come join us this Saturday evening for a time of fellowship and CoCoCommunity as we usher in Spring and continue to count down the weeks until the 29th “Last” Chicago CoCoFEST! later this year. No business topics, no agenda, just some time to get to know one another and see how everyone is enjoying their CoCo (or MC-10 :-).

Glenside Virtual Meeting Software Changes

The irony of sharing this notice with our CoCo community is not lost on me, but I wanted folks to have a heads up.

For those who gather with the Glenside membership for our monthly meetings, we utilize the BlueJeans video conferencing solution for our virtual meetings. Though some use the web version of the solution, for those who have installed the software application, be aware you may need to upgrade. It appears our April and May virtual meetings will be unaffected, but keep this in mind prior to the June meeting.

Desktop App Force Update to Minimum Version

BlueJeans regularly provides new versions of the Desktop App to release new features and bug fixes.  In order to take advantage of these enhancements, after May 31, 2021 all Desktop App clients below the requirement will be forced to upgrade to the latest version when attempting to join meetings. Users on Desktop App 2.26 or above will not be impacted.

Note:

  • This will impact users on both Windows and Mac systems (not Linux)

If not on version 2.26 or higher, please click here for more information on how to upgrade to the latest version.
