I don't think so or they (SEAOC/SEAOSC) would not have
changed what was working. In the same vein, I don't think Dennis McCroskey gets
the recognition for the effort he has volunteered in developing and maintaining
the seaosc web pages.
To go a step further, I don't believe the seaoc
membership is very much aware of what goes on here on this listserv, much of
which is seaoc related. There have been a lot of suggestions posted here and
discussed that would improve and expand the service of the organization (i.e.,
expanding committee meetings to cyberspace, putting seminars and education tools
on the 'Net) but I am fairly certain that these topics do not reach our
illustrious leaders. This is due to the fact that most of our elected leaders
are not on the 'Net.
I'm pretty sure I could go through the seaosc roster
and not find any e-mail addresses for our officers. Of course, mine's not there
either because I did not have one when it was published and I've changed ISPs
since. The only one I'm aware of that does have an e-mail address is the chair
of the Computer Applications Committee [someone's got to keep me in line :o)
If issues like these upset you as much as it does me, I
would like to suggest that our officers publish their e-mail address as well as
subscribe and participate on this listserv. Around election time, we could print
the names of the incumbents who do and don't as well as print names of
challengers who do. Maybe this way we could "encourage" our officers
to take us a little more seriously.
If you have any other thoughts on this topic, I would
be interested in hearing them.
