General Membership Meeting

Our General Membership Meeting is held on the third Monday of every other month. The GMM alternates with the Hardware SIG Meeting.  The location is at Hamilton Medical Plaza building at 1941 Hamilton St. in Allentown.  This building used to be the site of Allen Hardware.  There are doctor’s offices in the west side of the building, and in the east side there is a nice Community Meeting Room, which is where we will meet.

There are off-street parking spaces for 35 or more cars.  The entrance is level (no steps) so that wheelchairs can roll easily into the meeting room.  Hamilton St. is a major east-west road, and easy to find.  The site is between 19th and 20th streets on the north side of the road.

    Meetings start at 7:00 pm.   Directions are also under the "Directions" menu entry.

    Attending this group are many novice and intermediate computer users.  Everyone is welcome regardless of experience level. Programs are arranged to help beginning as well as intermediate users.  A Random Access session begins each meeting (a round-robin question and answer period) and sometimes becomes so interesting that it tends to replace the planned program.  Don't hesitate to join us, every one has to start somewhere, and this is a very good place to start!
