The guest speaker, Pam Holland was introduced.  Pam Halland - President, TechMoxie, LLC - After more than 20 years of practicing law, Ms. Holland founded TechMoxie out of a love of technology and the passion for simplifying the complex. She oversees curriculum development and manages a team of coaches who share her love of helping older adults rock their technology. Upon earning her Juris Doctor from the Catholic University's Columbus School of Law, she practiced commercial real estate law with Melrod, Redman & Gartlan for three years and then became the Associate General Counsel for Fannie Mae where she worked for 21 years. Leaving Fannie Mae in 2012, she took a consulting position with Bank of America but had always harbored the dream of becoming an entrepreneur.  For some time, she had been thinking about a business that would teach technology to “late adopters,” both the tech adverse and older generations. A lover of gadgets, Ms. Holland was always playing with the latest technology, testing out apps and troubleshooting devices. She decided to offer a class called “Getting to Know your iPad” at a local community center, and as she recounts, “Bingo! That was it. The class was full with a waiting list. I went to other community centers and started picking up one-on-one clients. It’s mostly coaching, filling in the gaps, and getting the client comfortable with the technology.”  TechMoxie was born in 2013 and has since expanded to a network of coaches who are bringing the joy and connectedness of technology to those looking to build job skills and intellectually curious retirees.
  
Following an engaging question and answer session, President Abe Helal presented the tree certificate to the speaker.
