During their May meeting, it was with pleasure that members of this organization’s Executive Board unanimously approved the appointment of Betsy R. Cramer to serve as Secretary for the balance of the 2015-2016 term. Betsy stepped forward after learning of the recent plea from Past President Jim Tinsley asking SBAUG Members to consider volunteering alongside the rest of the Officers & Appointees serving on the Executive Board. Cramer’s cumulative involvement with the organization, computing technologies as well as serving the greater Santa Barbara community is diverse and spans decades. We are fortunate to have her among those at the helm of our ‘ship’, working on behalf of the organization and its membership. Welcome Betsy! Reminder: Members-in-good-standing that are interested in serving as Program Chair or Publicity Coordinator on the Executive Board are still sought. To that end – please visit our Contact Us page and compose a new email to any of the listed members of the Executive Board and express your interest.
