Computers West   

 

 

Welcome to the PC web site. The PC club is run with an army of volunteers who govern the club, monitor the rooms, teach, keep the network functional, maintain the membership data base, keep the website up to date, and update the computers. The PC group offers diverse programs and activities within the club. Class offerings range from Windows and programs for Windows to Internet, Linux, Genealogy, Flight Simulation and Karaoke.

The PC group also offers free to members, a help group that is available at the club, usually early before hours to work on computers that members bring in for repair. These club members are knowledgeable and willing to work on computer software and hardware.

Informative meetings that cover a variety of topics of interest to members are held monthly from September through June.

PC Instructors':  The Instructors' Meeting is for all PC instructors, assistant instructors and administrators or coordinators. It is held in the Palo Verde room, the third Saturday of each month except June, July and August.  

At 8:30 we start with coffee, Danish rolls and socializing. At 9 am the meeting begins. There are various announcements and most times a presentation about new software, interesting computer related items, or teaching techniques. There may also be discussion about things related to our training classes.
