Membership provides all of the benefits listed below, as well as an opportunity to meet other members and volunteers.
The Hilton Head Island Computer Club respects the professionals in the community who derive their livelihood from providing computer services and repairs. Based on this, we don’t make house calls.
- Access to the Resource Center which is open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm, is a key membership benefit. The Center is staffed by volunteers who are available to help visitors and callers troubleshoot problems based on their individual experience, skills and expertise. If they can’t help directly, they can point out other volunteers from our Phone List who have agreed to list their phone number for help with specific issues and topics. The volunteers can also point out the wide variety of other resources available to members and prospective new members. Members can also utilize computer terminals, slide scanners, the media center, and other equipment and existing software. Members are asked to please limit use to one hour sessions, when others are waiting. Because of the wide variety of volunteer talents and skills, if a member requires help solving a specific problem, it’s recommended they call ahead to make sure someone with that specific expertise might be available to help with your specific problem.
- This Web Site contains links to the Weekly News, Bulletin Board, Volunteer information and access to a wealth of other related information.
- The HHICC Weekly News is emailed to members, bringing the news and access to the web site directly to members on a regular basis.
- Workshops are offered once a month, September through June. They are led by members experienced in a specific topic and generally last about one hour. Typically they cover the “basics” of a popular software program, like MS Word or Photoshop Elements, and provide tips and hints on how to make those programs more useful. As space is limited, reservations are required. Workshops aren’t intended to replace courses or classes offered locally.
- Special Interest Groups (SIGs) meet monthly in small groups and hold open discussions with questions and problem solving on topics like AOL, Image Editing, Macintosh, Music, Windows, etc. These special interests are constantly changing based upon interest and attendance. Current Special Interest Groups meeting times are listed on the calendar, which can be found on the web site.
