The Modesto PC User’s Group (MPCUG) was founded in 1982 and in 2001 celebrated its 19th year. The MPCUG provides an opportunity for users of “IBM compatible” (also referred to as Intel-based) computers to meet and share information, expertise and ideas on the subject of computers in relation to our everyday use. But most importantly, the MPCUG exists for the sole purpose of users helping each other, thus our motto, “User Helping User.”
How Is The Group Organized?
The Modesto PC User Group (MPCUG) is administered completely by member volunteers and employs no staff, although there is a board of directors consisting of five elected members. Also, there are five appointed positions, PC Post editor, SIG coordinator, press relations, membership and webmaster. MPCUG is operated as a not-for-profit organization, and all collected and generated funds are used for the direct benefit of the group.
I’m a Beginner. Are there Resources To Help Me?
Yes. The MPCUG has a number of resources to help novice users get more from their Windows based computers. Our monthly newsletter, the PC Post offers eight or more pages full of articles and tips for our members, ranging from basic tips to articles on advanced topics. In addition to the PC Post, we offer a Beginner’s Special Interest Group (SIG) plus a number of other SIGs covering a variety of subjects.
