GNOEA will hold our Holiday Party at Muriel’s Restaurant this year on December 13th from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm. The cost will be $50.00 per person, which will include two drinks and various hors d’oeuvres. Please let Susan know if you plan on attending and how many will be in your party!



Today we were pleased to have as our speakers Chris Hosch, Vice-president with WJS Enterprises Inc. and John O’Sullivan, Territory Sales Manager with Lexmark International.

WJS Enterprises provides digital imaging equipment, software, supplies and service to the eighteen parishes of Southeast Louisiana. Forty-one years ago WJS began selling copiers in the Greater New Orleans area. Today, with offices in Metairie and Baton Rouge, WJS services more than 5,000 placements throughout Southeast Louisiana. Started as a copier company and still offering copiers, WJS now provides much more with an array of hardware and software solutions that help clients manage and distribute documents. WJS technicians, system engineers and sales professionals are driven by one clear purpose – to provide expert support that helps you get the job done better, faster and more cost effectively.

John O’Sullivan program featured some of Lexmark’s newest technologies. They have machines small enough to fit on a desktop, and they feature customizable and innovative e-Task color touch screen, which offers simple access to a range of features including two-sided scanning, advanced copying and easy user authentication for enhanced security.

We wish to thank both Chris Hosch and John O’Sullivan for a very informative program!
