How can you contribute volunteer efforts to the PCUG?

The majority of our services are run by enthusiastic and willing volunteers. (The only employee is the Office Manager).
Our group would not be able to continue in it's present form without our volunteers. Different people get different things out of the experience - work experience, the satisfaction of helping others, contacts in various fields, who knows?

If you would like to volunteer your services in any capacity, no matter how small, just tell us who you are and what sorts of things you'd like to do. Here is just a partial list of some of the areas available to you!

COMMITTEE - Make a difference! If you have management skills, or just enthusiasm or interest, we would love to hear from you. Email either Committee or the Secretary. The AGM will soon again be with us.


STAFFING THE PCUG CENTRE: We welcome the interest of volunteers to staff the centre at weekends and occasionally during the week. You do not need technical skills, just the ability to perform some office tasks, answer the phone, accept renewal and other payments etc, and knowing your way around the everyday computer environment will help. Training will be provided. To get an idea of what's involved, please visit the Staffers Information area, but you will need your TIP User name and Password to do so.  You may also be able to assist with some of those background jobs in the office. 

Contact the Volunteer Coordinator for more information about staffing or assisting in the centre.

LAN SUPPORT: If you have technical skills, or are up the curve on Windows networking and servers, or could help us with small building type maintenance jobs. We would love to hear from you.

TRAINING: see the training page for full details

The Main Monthly Meeting takes considerable organising as well - if you could help, know an expert (commercial or private) who might like to speak, or would like to give a talk on any PC related subject - the MMM Organiser is waiting to hear from you.

TIP ADMINISTRATION - Heavy duty UNIX skills and a sunny disposition needed here {:-)) Contact the administrators if you might be able to help.

HELP SYSTEMS - Remember our motto is "Users Helping Users". We always need people who can help others with their many and varied PC problems, if you have some experience with a particular program, or hardware item it would be great to add you to our list of members who might be able to help by phone. Please contact the office.
We have a Help via Email system and you could possibly dip a toe in the water by 'lurking' and then perhaps helping on that mailing list.
Finally we often provide help and advice to members in their own homes - if you have plenty of PC skills and a caring and patient disposition - please contact the Office Manager.
