Many of our district members are now walking around with smartphones.  These are cell phones that are really personal computers for your pocket.  Don’t believe me?  Just look around at your members, especially after their Christmas shopping is done.

Some posts are really embracing technology.  Others are slowly getting there.  How about you?  Have you explored what you can do to harness the power of smartphones and notebooks at the post?

The cost of equipment is now well within the reach of most people.  Some services are even free.  Here is a sampler of free services:

  • Private telephone number for the post that rings to the post commander’s cellphone.
  • Free on-line office suite products.  This includes word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations.
  • Free or low-cost file sharing on the the internet (in the cloud).
  • Free teleconferencing using Skype or Google Voice
  • and much more
