Meeting on various Wednesdays at either The West Side Tennis Club or the Community House, the chapter’s goal is to familiarize members with new electronic devices, digital communications and social media.  Sessions start at either 4:00pm or 7:00pm, depending on location, and focus on both Mac and PC platforms and include demonstrations geared to beginners.

Members are encouraged to request topics for sessions and, to date, our sessions have included sharing digital photography and video, couponing, as well as introductions to Facebook, Pinterest and other social media platforms (check Calendar for dates).  Anticipated dates for the 2017-2018 season are as follows: 10/18 at WSTC 7 pm, 11/15 at CH 4 pm, 1/17 at CH 4 pm, 2/21 at CH 4 pm, 4/18 at WSTC 7 pm, and 5/16 at WSTC 7 pm.

Chairs:  Catherine Barton (Chair), Christine O’Brien Beydoun (Co-chair),  and Ellen Meier (Co-Chair)

ALL MEMBERS WELCOME – FEEL FREE TO DROP IN FOR ANY SESSION.
