Helping Members - CFCS Needs Your Help
If you want
CFCS to be THERE FOR YOU TOMORROW
YOU MUST GET INVOLVED TODAY!
Members often state a reluctance to volunteer because they think you have to
be a Computer Expert, but nothing could be further from the truth! CFCS has
Volunteer opportunities to fit every skill level, from beginners to experts. As a nonprofit,
educational organization, CFCS' success or failure is dependent on the dedication
and volunteer work of its members.
There is always a lot to do and new volunteers are always needed. If you can
answer the phone, type letters, make phone calls, enter data, take messages
off of voice mail, or put on a friendly face at a trade show, you can make
contribution to the continued success of CFCS.

Operating System, or type of hardware, are encouraged to serve on the Volunteer

By volunteering, you can not only help others, but you can learn from the
experience and also get a good feeling doing it.
Take a look at the "Help
Numbers" directory in the Newsletter to see the subjects currently covered.
If there is a subject that you are interested in that is not listed, we can
add it. If you can help with a title currently showing only one volunteer,
your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

As with any large organization there are always plans and projects we would like
to be able to initiate. These projects would provide more services for our members
as well as benefit the local community. Without administrative, clerical, or
technical support from our members several of these projects have not been able
to make it beyond the planning stages. Some of the Special Projects CFCS would
like to promote include:
1) Community outreach and education / mentoring programs
among Senior Citizen Groups, Youth Groups, and Special Needs Groups. 2) Projects
to attract young people into the organization.3) To put
together a history of CFCS. We are looking for a historian who
could interview some of the original members of the organization,
look through the old magazines, and research some of the history
of the organization. From this research, they could write a brief
history of the organization. This could even be a group project.4) Provide
additional educational opportunities for our members.5) To
write grant applications
