Involves adding new members to the Mail Chimp email list, gathering the images and info from the speakers, creating the email newsletter, and creating an occasional extra email. It also involves sending a welcome email to new members, which is set up to copy and paste.  2) In-meeting computer person. Tim currently uses his own computer but the Lyndon House also has a pc in that room that can be used. They promised that the projector would work plug-and-play from now on so that shouldn’t be an issue. Involves gathering the challenge images that are sent in to APG’s gmail account, getting to the meeting early to set up the computer, gathering images from member’s as they come in, making sure the presenter’s slide show is working, and advancing the images during the photo challenge show. Key for both positions is timeliness and availability.
