Hello Everyone,


Welcome to another edition of MacTalk for December 2016. It has been a great year. The group has held strong, and with your support, we’ve seen some great forward-looking changes take place. We have a new forum, which is growing in membership everyday, and MacTalk has successfully gone digital.


As we prepare for a New Year, I’d like to remind you that this month is AGM month. We have an incumbent executive ready for another year. Michal Holan will be stepping down, and his responsibilities as Secretary re-absorbed by Bal Sekha who came on to the executive in charge of Membership. We also have a volunteer Richard Nimmo filling Michael’s role as librarian. Michael stepped up to fill a vacuum, and we couldn’t be more appreciative of his efforts and contribution. Thank you Michael!


As is traditional, the AGM is a time to bring us some of your slideshows to celebrate the year past. Please feel free to bring your slideshows on USB’s, but if you need to, we’ll have a plugin DVD drive if absolutely necessary.


Thank you to all those that have already offered gifts for our extended draw prize! Every year at the AGM members and local retailers send in draw prizes to adorn the table. If you’d like to contribute a gift for the draw prize (it doesn’t have to be computer related) please contact me at, and if you can’t make it down to the meeting we’ll have someone come and pick it up.
Lastly, we have 140 tickets available for our Annual Christmas Draw of One of Two Apple iPad Air 2’s. Tickets are available online or at the meeting.


I look forward to seeing you all there, but if I don’t have yourself a wonderful Christmas and Holiday Season, and thank you for being a part of what makes VMUG great.
