November 2020 Chapter News And Notes

November Meeting

Our November program will be presented by Doug Ferber, VP Sales, and Jacob Daniluck, Tech Sales Expert, of Tieline. The theme for the presentation will be “Remote Broadcasting Connections: Trends and Suggestions”. As an added treat, since Tieline cannot buy lunch due to our pandemic induced online meeting, attendees will be entered into a drawing for an Amazon gift card. Tieline will be hosting the online Zoom platform for this meeting and Bill Hubbard will be sending out the connection information before the meeting to registered members of the chapter. Once again, if you are receiving this newsletter, are not a member of Chapter 80 but would like to join the meeting, please send an email to Bill Hubbard with your request.
