DVMUG Elections June 15th


DVMUG Elections June 15th

As required by our bylaws, DVMUG will be holding elections at our Zoom meeting on June 15th. The Board of Directors consists of 5 Directors which serve 2-year terms (2 elected in one year, 3 in the next) and 4 officers which serve 1-year terms. The officers are the President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Someone at this week’s meeting asked what each Board member’s job is, so here is some info from our bylaws:

The Board of Directors shall have control and management of DVMUG’s activities, establish all policies, and generally supervise the affairs of DVMUG. Additionally, Directors shall perform other duties as may be assigned by the President or other officer properly acting in the absence of the President.

President: The President shall serve as the executive officer of DVMUG, preside at all meetings of the membership and the Board of Directors, be an ex-officio member of all committees, exercise general supervision over affairs of DVMUG, and perform such other duties as are ordinarily incumbent upon a President.

Vice President: The Vice President shall act on behalf of the President in his or her absence and shall perform such duties as are ordinarily incumbent upon a Vice President and such other duties as may be assigned by the President or the Board of Directors. If the President is unable to serve for one reason or another, the Vice President shall assume the responsibilities and duties of the President until either (1) the President is once again able to perform his or her duties or (2) until the next election of officers. If the Vice President becomes the President, the Board of Directors will designate a replacement to serve out the term of Vice President. In the event that the office of the Vice President becomes vacant for any reason other than the succession of the Vice President to President, the vacancy shall be filled as soon as practical by the President with the concurrence of the Board of Directors.

Secretary: The Secretary shall keep and maintain the minutes of all of the Board of Directors meetings, in the form and manner prescribed by the Board of Directors. The Secretary shall record the results of all votes taken at the General Membership Meetings and shall maintain a current database of members of DVMUG. In addition, the Secretary shall perform any additional duties that are ordinarily incumbent upon a Secretary. The Secretary shall be a member of the standing Membership Committee.

Treasurer: The Treasurer shall serve as Treasurer and maintain records of all fees, dues, and other monies collected and disbursed in the form and manner prescribed by the Board of Directors. The Treasurer will also perform such duties as are ordinarily incumbent upon a Treasurer, including a Financial Report that the Treasurer will present at each of the Board meetings and as directed by the President at the General Membership Meetings. The Treasurer shall be a member of the Finance Committee. The Treasurer shall prepare and maintain appropriate books and ledgers (which may be kept in electronic form) and make disbursements as prescribed by the Board of Directors and consistent with the Bylaws of DVMUG.

So, those are the job descriptions. We are required by the bylaws to meet in January, April, July, and October, but we usually meet monthly. Sometimes we will cancel a meeting if we don’t have any pressing business. Meetings are currently being held via Zoom.

As for this year’s candidates, Chris Wysocki and Jack Stark are up for reelection to the Board, and all four officers are as well. All of the currently serving Board members and officers have agreed to continue, however, if you would like to give it a try, the floor will be open for nominations before the elections are held in June.

Remember, a group such as ours doesn’t just happen. It happens because of members that are willing to give up a little more of their time in service to the group. So please join us on June 15th and support our Board members.

Don Don Nelson, President


Labeling Icons with Text


Labeling Icons with Text

Check It Out by Caryn Lum

After a hard drive failure, I was forced to get a new M1 MacBook Air and therefore forced to make a big jump from Yosemite to Big Sur. I had previously used a now-discontinued application, “Folder Brander,” to put text on the icons of drives, folders, and documents to help me with organization. A quick internet search revealed no good replacement, but it turns out that you can accomplish this task using only the Finder and Preview.

Step 1.

In the Finder, select the item whose icon you want to label and click cmd-I (Get Info).
Click on the item’s icon in the Get Info dialog box and click cmd-C (copy). You are copying the .icns file to your clipboard.

Step 2.

Launch Preview and select “New From Clipboard” (cmd-N)

Step 3

Preview will open a document with multiple thumbnails of the icon in its sidebar. The thumbnails are for various icon sizes, with the largest icon size at the top. Pick a large to medium icon to edit. You will be able to have larger text size on your icon if you choose a medium size – #3 is good. Use Preview’s markup tools to add your text. You can also change the color (Tools > Adjust Color), but Big Sur users should beware – the OS 11 Preview is said on the internet to be buggy and Preview crashed several times while I was playing with this tool.

Step 4

In Preview’s main window (not the sidebar), “Select All” (cmd-A), then “Copy” (cmd-C) to copy your customized image to your clipboard.

Step 5


Back in the Finder Get Info dialog box, click on the item’s icon again and click cmd-V (paste).

Step 6

You have replaced the item’s original icon with your custom icon. Selecting the icon in the Get Info dialog box and clicking delete will restore the default icon.
