Datatel Kick-Off Set!

November 15, 2001

The Datatel Implementation Oversight Team would like to invite all faculty and staff to attend the Datatel Implementation Kickoff. Please mark your calendars as this event is scheduled for:

Thursday, November 29, 2001
At 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
In S - 101 of the Science Building
(Refreshments and entertainment beginning at 1:45 p.m. prior to the meeting).

Many months of review and planning have gone into this project and we are now at the exciting point of implementing a new database system at Dordt College. The database system will enable us to perform our tasks better and continue to advance the cause of Christian Higher Education.

At this meeting you will receive important information about the implementation timeline, team assignments and the roles of those participating, as well as some general information from Datatel representative Lynne Boone. A copy of the Project Approach Document will also be distributed to all faculty and staff members at this meeting. The Project Approach Document serves as the blueprint for how the Datatel system will be implemented at Dordt College.

To make this project a success and meet all of our objectives campus-wide, it is of critical importance that you attend.

As an added incentive, and to celebrate how far we have come with this project, refreshments and entertainment will be provided prior to the meeting in the lobby of the Science Building beginning at 1:45 p.m.

If you have any questions about this project or would like more information, please contact myself or one of the other members on the Implementation Oversight Team.

We are looking forward to the kick off and meeting with all of you in two weeks!

On behalf of the Implementation Oversight Team,

Sue Droog

IOT Members: Arlan Nederhoff, Jim Bos, Dave Netz, Quentin Van Essen, Les Netjes, Gerry Mouw, Brian Van Donselaar, Travis Rayhons, Marv Wielard
