About Us

 

The Melbourne PC User Group Inc is a non-profit volunteer based club which was started in 1984 with an initial focus on IBM compatible PCs. Today the club has close to 2000 members and much broader interests.  The Melbourne Computer Club is a division of the Melbourne PC User Group Inc.

What we do ...

Many of our activities are organised as meetings of members in Special Interest Groups (SIGs).A SIG is simply a group of members, usually living in the same geographic area, with a common interest.  Many SIGs have a particular focus to their activities - for example we have a Windows SIG, a Linux SIG, a Web Design SIG, a Digital Imaging SIG and an Android SIG. Other SIGs have an interest in more general computing topics or areas of interest which involve the productive use of computing devices - for example photography and genealogy. Membership entitles you to attend any of our SIG meetings.

We have a Monthly Meeting at our clubrooms on the first Wednesday of the month (except January) which is streamed over the internet for those members unable to attend. We also publish a monthly newsletter which members can download and/or subscribe to a printed copy.

Some Membership benefits ...

Members have access to iHelp assistance run by our volunteer based iHelp SIG. Very handy for solving those computing and internet glitches we all experience from time to time.

Members are welcome to visit the Moorabbin clubrooms during opening hours to borrow books from our library and use the internet lounge facilities.

Membership also includes an entitlement to access Microsofts' Office365 cloud-service, commonly called a MelbPC Office 365 account. This includes the online versions of Outlook, Word, Excel, OneNote and Yammer. None of its capability is mandatory for MelbPC members to use, but much of it should be very attractive and useful.
