President's Message

When someone hands you a flyer, it's like they're saying,
"Here, you throw this away
.”
Mitch Hedberg

Mitch Hedberg is one of my favorite comedians. His view of everyday life always cracks me up. Sometimes just thinking of him makes me laugh. Part of it is the delivery of his messages, and part of it is the truth that he speaks. How many times has someone handed you a flyer and the first thing you did was find the nearest garbage can!

VC Flyer
(Oops, don't throw this out. NAPO VC communicates important information to all of you, but not with flyers!)

NAPO VC POINT is our most popular mode of communication. Each member of the Virtual Chapter is automatically added to the NAPO VC POINT community when you join. If you are not receiving VC POINT communications, check your settings at NAPO.net. Log in to POINT, select My Profile, My Account, Community Notifications, and make sure Virtual Chapter is set to Real Time, Daily Digest, or Plain Text. If you need help, let us know!

Virtual Chapter Vault—Did you miss a meeting? At any time, members can log in to our website and view past meetings, all the way back to 2011. Don't miss out on this wealth of information! (It's way too much info to put on a flyer.)

NAPO Conference Recordings—Virtual Chapter purchases the ability for members to retrieve and view conference recordings virtually through the NAPO website. This is yet another benefit of VC paid by your dues. Take every advantage! You access the recordings through NAPO.net rather than NAPOVC.com. Select Education, Login to NAPO University, and select Conference Recordings. NAPO.net knows that you’re a NAPOVC chapter member. If you need help with this, just let us know. That's what we're here for.

And finally, are you a person who likes to help fellow members? We are looking for a Marketing Director to help us continue sending out "flyers" or communications through Social Media. Email me [email protected] if you would like more information on getting involved.

To wrap it up, watch for Virtual Chapter "flyers," but don't throw us out!

 Stay safe and healthy!

Tech Talk

Scanning App Options

While my preference is to scan from my Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner for the best scans, there are times when a scanning app will do the trick.

When someone needs to scan a document to send to me and they don't have a scanner but do have a smartphone, I tell them about several scanning apps they can download— most are free.

These are just some of the scanning apps available, in alphabetical order:

  • Adobe Scan Digital

  • CamScanner

  • Easy Scanner PDF

  • Evernote Scannable

  • Genius Scan

  • Scannable

  • Scanner App

  • TurboScan

Some apps are available for the iPhone, some for Android, and some for both. Some allow you to use your phone to write your signature and then copy it into the document being scanned. Some allow you to scan business cards.

Check them out and try a few to decide which app is best for you. It’s great to have one handy when you need to quickly scan a paper to capture the information for yourself or to send it to someone.
