June 13, 7pm General Meeting: Topic: "Microsoft Word vs LibreOffice Writer", presenter Joel Ewing.  This will be a look at two widely used word processing applications, what they have in common and where they conflict.  If you don't have access to a fairly recent version of Microsoft Office, LibreOffice may offer a satisfactory no-cost alternative.  This will be an in-person meeting (with Zoom simulcast) in Room 1001 in the lower level of Highland Crossings Center, 1801 Forest Hills Blvd., Bella Vista, AR.  Links to Google Maps for the location of HCC and for directions inside HCC are located at the bottom of this web page. 

For those who are uncomfortable with an in-person meeting because either they or others in their household are still in high risk categories for COVID-19, the concurrent Zoom broadcast of the June 13 General Meeting can be joined 5 to 10 minutes before the meeting by clicking this Zoom link, or manually specify Meeting ID: 863 4087 0735 and Passcode: 3Sb6Yq . 

Although reported COVID-19 cases in Arkansas and in Benton Country are still low compared to peak periods, there is an upward trend nationwide and a gradual increase in Arkansas cases.  In-person attendees should stay alert for any changes in guidelines by the day of the meeting. 

Visitors and Guests are welcome.  For an explanation of using Zoom for BVCC meetings, see the article in the May Bits & Bytes newsletter.  The Zoom application can be installed on PCs, Macs, and mobile devices for free.
