" The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don't wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope."

SeniorNet Community,
 
Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield Arkansas, founded in 1948, is the largest health insurer in Arkansas. Along with its affiliates it has more than 2,500 employees. They are an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association who offers healthcare coverage in all 50 states.
 
The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association is comprised of 37 independent, locally operated Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans that collectively provide healthcare coverage for 100 million - nearly one in three - Americans.
 
Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield reached out to partner with SeniorNet for computer training for their employees. This specified training took place at the Blue Cross Blue Shield facility - making "mobile-off-site" computer training  an active and promising initiative for the SeniorNet Arkansas Team.
 
Kudos to Diane Hughes, SeniorNet Center Leader, the entire Arkansas Leadership Team and all of the volunteers that continue to make great progress in fulfilling our mission.

SeniorNet Community,

 

We are in our 30th year and it has been a fulfilling journey. Below are a few announcements to celebrate our Anniversary --- there are more to come before the end of the year.

 

Volunteer of the Year Award - In February Center Leaders were given criteria and guidelines for this award. Their submissions will be reviewed by the Board of Directors and one volunteer will be selected - to represent all of SeniorNet. The award winner will receive monetary and technology recognition. This prestigious award will be announced in May 2016.

 

Curriculum Contest 2016 - The curriculum contest (whereby centers create and submit instructional materials) has generated fantastic results for the past two years. All centers have the opportunity to benefit from the dedication and sharing of volunteers. The curriculum submitted by centers will be stored in Leadership Exchange for all of our centers to access and use. Winners will receive monetary and technology awards. The details and criteria will be announced in June.

 

ADOBE 14 - The new releases of PSE and PE will be distributed to centers this year. A formal announcement will be made via SeniorNet Newsletter.
