Times are changing, and so perhaps we should too.
While our membership has experienced a natural ebb due to retirements and changing interests, we’ve seen a surge in the popularity and activity on our forum. Over the past year, forum engagement has exceeded the number of our financial members, boasting a rich tapestry of discussions on diverse topics.
The committee has been eager to infuse fresh energy and has been on the lookout for enthusiastic members. Though our team has been short of one member in the past year, our conviction remains unshaken.
A pivotal conversation awaits us: where does ADUG go from here? We invite each one of you to ponder upon strategies and solutions as we gear up for an essential discussion at our upcoming AGM.
Might it be time to diversify our focus?
Delving into FreePascal and Lazarus nuances, migration tactics, and contrasting IDEs.
Exploring Pascal-inspired tools like Quartex Pascal, TMS Web Core, Elevate Web Builder, and more.
Addressing industry revolutions such as LLM and AI.
Showcasing how members harness the power of Delphi/Object Pascal.
And much more?
As many members adapt to the shifting environment, isn’t it worth pondering if ADUG should reshape its identity? How about envisioning a revitalized Australian Pascal User Group?
We need actionable strategies for ADUG’s growth and sustainability. Once charted, we’ll require hands on deck to execute them. Are you eager to contribute, in committee roles or otherwise?
We’re on the lookout for presenters and speakers, and if you have someone in mind, or you’re ready to share, we’re all ears!
Consider leading a workshop or a study group on a subject close to your heart. Remember, in a learning journey, expertise isn’t mandatory.
We urge you to mull over these thoughts and join the discussion actively. Every effort, be it big or small, will carve ADUG’s future. Let’s shape it, together.
