Membership has its Advantages and besides, its Fun!

The annual membership fee is $40.00 and the membership year is from November 1st through October 31st. We prorate the membership for new members at $5 per month after January 31st.

Join the Portland PC User Group and tap into an incredible resource. Our membership is made up of many different people, from corporate professionals who make their living doing computer work, to home computer novices who have a desire to know more, do more, and discover more about personal computers.

PPCUG members enjoy sharing experiences, discovering innovative solutions, and simply networking with other computer users. Whatever your level of knowledge, as a PPCUG member you'll learn how to get the maximum use of your computer with a minimum of confusion. If you have a problem, there is a good chance someone in the group has been over that rocky road you are on and can offer helpful, friendly, free advice.

Learn from corporate speakers * Informative monthly meetings include a question and answer session followed by presentations designed to keep you up to date with advancements in computer technology. Guest speakers include representatives from national and local software and hardware companies, nationally syndicated columnists, and local experts.

Get the help you need * PPCUG maintains a list of volunteers who will share their expertise with others who have an immediate need for assistance. No more waiting for national support phone lines to open in the morning, or sitting frustrated on a Saturday or Sunday.

Enjoy a subscription to our newsletter * Each month our newsletter, the Portland Computing newsletter, will bring you news, tips, tricks and reviews. The newsletter is packed with information about the user group, coming- events, and articles covering a wide range of topics about what users like you are doing, problem-solving tips, application shortcuts, and what's hot and what's not..

Get answers via our e-mail forum * PPCUG supports an e-mail Discussion Forum accessed via the Internet. Members can carry out problem-solving discussions, make announcements, ask questions, list products for sale, and just plain talk. It's a town meeting by e-mail.

Special Interest Groups * PPCUG organizes hands-on classes and special interest group (SIG) meetings on specific software and hardware programs to develop user knowledge and skills. Both the classes and SIGS have proven to be especially useful to beginner and novice computer users.

Enjoy user group discounts * Members are eligible for special prices from many software and hardware companies, and significant savings on web services from Infinity Internet.

Door prizes at meetings * National and local software and hardware companies generously donate products to be awarded as door prizes at monthly meetings.

Use computers at the Resource Center * PPCUG maintains a Resource Center with computers for SIGs, training and education classes.

Reward yourself - Volunteer! * All PPCUG programs and activities are administered by member volunteers. No one receives a salary or a fee for their volunteer work, and all income from annual member fees and other sources are used to support the wide variety of services offered by the organization.

Attend the next meeting * Don't be shy. Come on by. Visit our next meeting. Ask a computer question that's been unanswered. No question is too simple or unimportant. One or more members will probably have an answer for you. Details of the next meeting and instructions on how to get there are right here on our web site. We look forward to saying hi.

Membership benefits include all of the services described on this website, plus access to the members-only website and the pc-grapevine email list, and a monthly copy of Portland Computing (the group's newsletter) as well as access to past issues.
