Hopefully you got a new Apple device over the holidays or hand-me-down device. If not, Apple is expected to have plenty of new hardware. If you have a device that needs a new home, I encourage you putting the item for sale in our AAUG eNews. Apple tech journalists are expecting the largest roll out of hardware. I look forward to a year of improving our quality of life and hopefully get to our new normal later this year. My vision is to do a hybrid meeting so people who are part-time residents and people who reside in other cities can join AAUG.
We will finish the AAUG year virtually and hopefully be able to gather in the fall. The BP Energy Center has again postponed their reopening. The good news is you never need to miss a meeting. They are recorded via Zoom. Simply email me for the link. My hope is that we will be able to return to Computers and Caffeine in person as soon as the pandemic situation improves.
BOARD OF DIRECTOR NOMINATIONS
The AAUG Board of Directors will be taking nominations through February. If anyone is interested in volunteering next year, please let me know by sending an email to email@example.com. We have one position open on the board. If you have a skill you can donate, there is a place for you on our board. We can suit the responsibilities to your time and skills. I would also like to thank the board members for their year of service. They have done a great job, orchestrating our way through this pandemic.. It has been a pleasure to work with such a dedicated volunteer board.

MAC MINUTES PODCAST
The Mac Minutes Podcast is continuing shows and would appreciate you listening, subscribing or leaving a comment. Subscribing is on most of your favorite podcatchers. If you have something interesting, I would like to have you as a guest. If you are new to listening to podcasts, I can help get you started.
