Doug Coe will be lead a group discussion on How to Keep the Office Running Smoothly on Thursday, March 6 at noon.
"Do you know where your old photos are? Do you have a system for keeping your phone and address list up to date? Do you do bookkeeping with a snazzy software program, or do you keep records with pen and blank paper?
Let's share tips and techniques for managing a small office. Bring print-out examples of invoices or contact lists. Bring your ideas on good ways to manage lots of photos, hundreds of emails, various mailing and phone lists. Also solutions that you've hit on for managing phone lines, answering devices, faxes, copiers, scanners, and other handy gadgets. Tell us about software you can't live without.
And bring nagging questions about how to make your office life smoother and more efficient. We will follow where your interests lead, and hopefully everyone will take away at least one new idea to put to use."
