Special Interest Groups
The PCCT's Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide excellent learning opportunities for members wishing to continue to learn new features of their hardware, software, or applications, enhance their skills and share their expertise with respect to a wide range of computer topics, based on the premise that the club's greatest resource is the accumulated knowledge within the membership.
While SIG leaders are volunteer club members who generously give of their time and knowledge for the benefit of the other members, many of the SIGs rely very much on participation of those attending.
The SIGs' formats vary greatly, from structured teaching or presentation modes to informal sharing, demonstrations, and almost always include time for individual questions and solutions to these, offered by the leader or other participants. Many of the SIG leaders regularly send e-mail messages to the total club membership highlighting their plans for upcoming sessions, so it's worth checking your e-mail.
Because of changing members' interests and developments in technology, SIGs tend to come and go. New SIGs are formed when a number of members have expressed interest in a particular topic and leadership is forthcoming from the membership. Sometimes, new SIGs arise out of a special interest evening held to explore the extent of interest in the topic.
Attendance at and participation in SIGs are available to all PCCT members in good standing.
Currently the following SIGs are active:
