NEW MEMBER: Welcome to W. Marshall Pearson, Wills and Estates attorney, who was voted in as our newest member!

The following is a summary of our speakers’ presentations:

SPEAKERSSusan Dykas of eBernie, Inc. (computer & I.T. consulting) and Dieter Enz of SLCI (painting contractor and color specialist).

1st Speaker:  Susan provides a variety of computer / technology services and solutions for small to mid-sized businesses. She discussed the importance of implementing an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) as part of a business’ I.T. infrastructure. A computer can deal with slight differences, but a strong charge or a deep drop will cause the computer’s power supply to fail. A UPS protects a computer or server against these power failure issues, which may be caused by storms, brownouts, blackouts, etc. A business experiences many benefits when implementing a UPS which; 1. protects hardware assets, 2. prevents data loss and 3. enables continued operations in the event of a power issue, i.e. more uptime and less downtime. A good lead for Susan is a professional services firm or doctors’ offices.

2nd Speaker:  Dieter provides color consultations and painting services for your interior and exterior needs. Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. To protect against this risk, the EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, beginning April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. Dieter has gone through this process and is now EPA certified. Send your home and business painting leads to Dieter!
