Reappointment of EARLUG Chair

As the Emonton Area Local Users Group of Encompass Canada begins
yet another year (34 and counting) I am pleased to announce the
reappointment of Gordon Millard as Chair of the EARLUG Executive.

As always, the Chair can be reached at chair@earlug.org.

Congratulations Gord! (Next year you should remind us that the term
ends in April, and that a new appointment is needed... otherwise you
may end up getting reappointed year after year after year ;-)

Vice-Chair, Communications,
Edmonton Area Local Users Group (EARLUG)

New Directions in New HP Users Global Community

Encompass Canada, established in 2001 to better serve users of existing Compaq and Digital technologies at the time, underwent further changes several years afterwards to accommodate users of HP technologies. With the recent global restructuring of the HP users community, Encompass Canada once again is seeking new directions to not only better represent Canadian HP users but also work with other HP users communities in both Canada and around the world as part of the new, independent global HP community.

In the days to come we will be evaluating how Encompass Canada can continue to best serve HP users in Canada. Our Board will be communicating and consulting with our membership, other user groups in Canada, and HP partners and sponsors who have supported us throughout the years. Developments in our process 'to catch up with the world' will be posted on this Web site.

In the meantime, we will continue to update and upgrade this site so that it can become a more effective communication tool for Encompass Canada. We are aware that many of our new members have experienced challenges in the sign-up process (or lack thereof) for membership registration. This is one of the areas we will be tackling once additional time and resource becomes available.

Newsletter Response Indicates Renewed Interest in
Bringing HP Releated Events Back to Canada

Feedback from our recent newsletter has indicated renewed interest by our members in attending HP related events in Canada. We are in the process of exploring topics and venues that include continuing our popular technical seminars series to bringing a VMW Technical Update Day event to Canada.

Who said everything in Vegas stays in Vegas? Encompass Canada President, Dave Wilson, who attended last year's HPTF & Expo sent us this photos of the luau event. (l to r) Connect Executive Director Kristi Browder, then Connect President Nina Buik, and HP Delegate Brad Harwell
