WELCOME! to the
WinCap COMMUNITY NEWS
  There is nothing more important to everyone at CCA/WinCap than the users we serve. Throughout our 20-year history we've used many ways to stay in touch with each and every one of you. While personal, one-on-one time is always preferable, it's not always practical, especially for the monthly messages we would like to share.
  This newsletter is not just a communication medium for us to speak to you. We are looking forward to this being an interactive, multipurpose medium between you (our valued users) and the CCA/WinCap Team. We are also encouraging user to user and district to district communication and sharing. This newsletter is the official launch of WinCap Community News... Welcome!
  Please be sure to join the guest mailing list located on the left panel of each newsletter. You'll note a brief questionnaire. The information provided allows us to better serve you and your particular needs.

  Everyone is welcome to join WinCap Community News! We thank you and hope you find this interesting and useful!
We want to hear from you!

Larry Steinhart, Presidentbegin
LarrySteinhartThis year marks my 35th year working in the school business community. My career started in the mid-1970's providing school finance training and support services to school districts through the Questar III BOCES State Aid Planning Service, a service I helped found and then directed to serve over 500 districts statewide. I subsequently served as the Director of Financial and Information Services for that BOCES, in which capacity I streamlined and automated their financial operations and enhanced the business office role in support of the agency's overall management and operations.  In 1986 I left the BOCES to become the Director of Research and Development for NYSASBO. In that role I assisted districts in assessing internal workflow and business office staffing to meet demand, and I was a champion for adapting those "new-fangled" microcomputers for use in the school business office. While at NYSASBO I also designed and implemented a budget development application that helped hundreds of business administrators compile and present their proposed budgets and prepare tax projections. continued

MEET THE TEAMbottom continued from above
I left NYSASBO in 1990 to form Capital Computer Associates. After developing the FACCTS application to facilitate special BOCES accounting and reporting functions, we began the development of WinCap and released the first version on July 1, 1996.  

On the home-front, my wife Joyce and I are settling into our new lifestyle as empty-nesters. Joyce retired last year after over 30 years of service with the NYS Office of Mental Disabilities. Daughter Stephanie graduated with a degree in finance from Siena College in May and is now working on our WinCap accounting support team. Son Evan is a junior at UConn and has aspirations to be an actuary. Our three pugs Lily, Rocco, and Penny are enjoying our devoted attention. Weekends these days are mostly spent enjoying the beauty of Lake George and the surrounding Adirondacks and nearby Vermont, relaxing, boating, or skiing. My masochistic side keeps me a devoted Bills fan, honoring my Buffalo roots. While retirement for me is not something that I foresee anytime in the near future, Joyce and I hope to start becoming snow birds for a few months each winter.    

WinCap has been my labor of love for the past 17 years, and here we are today serving almost 200 school districts and BOCES. In today's economy and with all the demands on our time, reality dictates that we utilize the technology at our disposal to communicate and share information. I am excited to be launching this new means for keeping in touch with the entire WinCap community. I am proud to be serving all of you who work to serve the students of our state, and I look forward to continuing to do so for many years to come.
