Welcome to the Prescott Computer Society

random meeting photoA typical PCS meeting scene.

The Prescott Computer Society (PCS) is a PC-based users group located in Prescott, Arizona. Our primary attention is focused on IBM-compatible computers, associated software and smart phones. We strive to provide personal, home office and small business computing solutions and presentation topics. You may obtain both basic and advanced information about computers by attending our club's meetings.

We hold several meetings each month to show you how to get the most out of your computer. These consist of our General meeting as well as several Special Interest Group meetings. Anyone with an interest in computers is welcome to attend our meetings and join PCS.

PCS is a member of the Association of Personal Computer User Groups (APCUG).

Fun Stuff

A typical Q&A meeting chaired by some of our favorite PCS members. It's known as a "Stump The Geeks" session which is always enjoyed by all those who attend.

We often hold Question and Answer sessions at General meetings where our members attempt to "Stump The Geeks" with their questions about computer and smartphone problems and other related issues.

Do the geeks ever get stumped? Of course, once in a while they do but we all appreciate the very interesting and informative discussions that are held. I guess you'll just have to come to a meeting to see for yourself.

Meeting Info

Unless otherwise noted, all meetings will be held in the Founders Suite (1st floor) of the Prescott Public Library. The Library is located at 215 E. Goodwin Street, Prescott, Arizona. Our extended meeting schedule (5-6 months in advance) is available here.

Special Topics SIG - Leader: JB Burke
Location: Prescott Public Library; Founders Suite A & B

Congress just passed, and the president signed, a Joint Resolution overturning an FCC ruling that would have prevented your ISP from selling your private information. The ISPs favored this, but it's not so great for you personally. At today's meeting JB will delve into the various ways you can protect your information from the prying eyes of the ISPs and others. Plus we'll delve into all manner of other topics, both entertaining and educational. Don't miss this session - the safety of your data depends on it.

Please deposit give-away items on the table in the back marked "Free Stuff." Any items left here at the end of the meeting are subject to disposal.

2) If you have items that are just too good to give away, you may set up a separate table and hold your own sale.

3) We conduct a free drawing for gift cards at the end of the meeting, so make sure to get a pair of tickets from whoever is in charge and place one on the item you'd like to win.
