In these ways The Data Center realizes its mission to build prosperous, inclusive, and sustainable communities by making informed decisions possible.

Lamar Gardere is Executive Director. Lamar is responsible for guiding The Data Center’s mission of democratizing data into realistic action, ensuring quality standards and the ongoing impact of the organization. In addition, he is responsible for leading The Data Center’s ongoing efforts to transform local culture to one that embraces data as an intrinsic component of sound decisionmaking.

Amazon Prime is a yearly paid service of Amazon that gives a number of perks for Amazon customers, the upgraded free 2 day shipping on many products and Prime Video being the most popular. Club president Ray Paternostro will go over most of the services with a concentration on Prime Video as well as some of the set top boxes that can be used to bring content from Amazon and other streaming providers which typically plug straight into modern high definition flat screen televisions.
