Arkansas Academy of Computing Newsletter
October 6, 2020
Hello Academy Members!
I hope this note finds you all well and safe and sound.
Thank you so much for continuing to stay tuned in to the fellowship of our Academy by joining us this year for our first ever virtual Arkansas Academy of Computing Induction Happy Hour and virtual Business Meeting Ocotber 23-24, 2020. While we will miss giving hugs and shaking hands with everyone for hospitality and entertainment at the Country Club Friday night, we are anxious to see how many of you might re-join us since you won't have to travel! And this year, the events are absolutely free!
2020 marks our fourteenth class of honorees! The Class of 2020 is comprised of eleven technology professionals whose work has distinguished them in their fields and in service to technology innovation and education in Arkansas. Every year, the Academy is strengthened by the broad ranging experience and expertise of its new members. This year this is doubly true, especially considering the circumstances that have led us, like so many others, to turn to more technology to celebrate them in a virtual setting. Please join us to welcome them all Friday evening, October 23, beginning at 6 p.m. Also, the following day, Saturday, October 24, at 9 a.m., we will have a very full morning with a robust program, "Technology Responding to Crisis," followed by our annual business meeting.
All details for both the Inductee Ceremony and the Saturday meeting are linked from the top of our web site at www.araoc.org
. We ask that you register for both the Friday and Saturday events because they will have separate Zoom links. When you complete your registration, you will receive a confirmation email that contains a Zoom link that you can use to join the virtual party/meeting. If you are unfamiliar with how to use the Zoom platform, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will be happy to walk you through the procedures.
Thank you for your participation.
See you October 23-24 and stay safe!
