Have Screen Will Travel
My idea/objective is to purchase a portable, modern air-lift pneumatic project screen of sufficient size to handle viewing groups of up to 80 people for BBB anti-fraud presentations in the community and as a resource that we can lend out other non-profit groups for similar educational purposes.
Better Business Bureau Serving Southern Alberta and East Kootenay is a non-profit organization built on the trust of both businesses and consumers. For the past 62 years we have continued to strive to help recognize and prevent crime and fraud. In my public education role, I am often out in the community promoting public awareness through a variety of PowerPoint programs, several of which have been translated into a half a dozen languages.
Who Will it Benefit?
In terms of image quality and ease of viewing for larger audiences the immediate benefits will be for the groups viewing the BBB presentations. I have had a number of occasions where I had to project onto a wall that was less than ideal; on one occasion our past president had to project onto a piece of drywall propped up against a pillar! Beyond there will be benefits for other non-profit groups that do not have this equipment - in this sense I see the screen being lent out to several other groups using it for similar public education purposes that do not have the resources to purchase their own. I have had requests in the past for a screen by other organizations that we collaborate with that do not have it in their budget to rent equipment of this nature on a regular basis.
