General meetings cover a wide range of subjects. Typically, such a meeting will
involve some general PCS business or the distribution of
information concerning up-coming meetings and other
opportunities in the local community. As warranted, there
will be discussion regarding the latest computer security
threats, new products and other items of interest to the
Often some of our members give presentations about subjects in
which they have some specialized knowledge. For example,
Phil Ball's Windows Tips 'n' Tricks is a constant crowd pleaser.
Recently, we have had other members give talks and
demonstrations about backup techniques, GPS equipment and virus
and spyware removal.
In addition, some of our speakers are provided by the
AZACC (Arizona Alliance of
Computer Clubs). Often these individuals represent
commercial enterprises and demonstrate new hardware and software
for your consideration.
While some of these speakers obviously have their business interests in
mind, their presentations are related to our mission and our members
are often presented with significant discounts should they wish
to purchase the products.
We don't forget the social niceties at PCS either. Once a year we get
together for a social meeting and have a picnic! The most recent one was held at a ramada at Willow Lake.
There's usually a short presentation followed by a pot-luck feast that always seems
to fill everyone completely.
