Biography:

Dick's first experiences in programming began in the early 1960's in the banking industry. In the later part of that decade a major insurance company in RI brought him on as their Programming Manager. After moving on to head up the Data Processing Department at a Manufacturing Firm in the early 1970's, Mr. Evans envisioned a user's group for data processing professionals that used the System/3 computers from IBM.  From that idea the New England System Three User's Group (later to be known as NES) began with it's first meeting in Foxboro, MA.  Dick was President of that organization for it's founding years while he was the Information Systems Manager at a North Attleboro manufacturing firm.  He graduated from Bryant College with his degree in business, received a Diploma of Practical Theology from International Seminary and is past President and past Webmaster of the New England Midrange Users Group, the RI AS/400 user's group.  

Mr. Evans owns Evans Associates, a consulting firm that was started in 1976.  In addition to Computer Consulting and Web Page Development, he offers his services teaching Microsoft Applications and basic computer skills for clients whereever he is located.
