We all have one thing in common; a desire to network with people to help us understand, and encourage us in discovering more about personal computers, and gaining exposure to emerging technologies

MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS
  • A local club with global benefits
    The PCCT is a user group in Toronto, Canada. We are affiliated with an umbrella organization called Association of Personal Computer User Groups (APCUG), where user groups share experiences and common concerns.
  • Special Events
    Our Program Manager engages speakers from nationally syndicated columnists to high profile representatives of major hardware and software companies and local experts including our own members to discuss new products and future trends.
  • Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
    We host a number of dynamic SIGs led by member volunteers who are knowledgeable in a specific subject. Attendees comprise a subset of our membership with like interests. A SIG can deal with individual concerns, questions, and personal experiences much better than a monthly General Meetings. A SIG Coordinator manages the affairs of the roster of SIG Leaders and interfaces with a Facilities Manager. Each SIG meets at a designated day of a month, except in July and August.
  • Volunteer Opportunities
    Get a chance to update or learn new skill sets. What a wonderful way of opening doors to opportunities for professional growth, leadership and training.
  • Online Services
    For out-of-town members, and especially those who canít come to meetings, the benefits from virtual contact with one another are immeasurable, but very real.

    Online Services consist of these Web pages, and two Web forums (mail-lists). These are covered by the annual family membership fee.

    1. Visit these Web pages often, you can even be reminded when they are updated.
    2. The purpose of the mail-lists can be compared to virtual SIGs or bulletin board forums. As a registered user (free) you send questions or answers to one address, which then redistributes your questions or replies to all registered users of that group. The mail-lists and their contents are controlled by a list-moderator.
