True to the principles of Members Helping Members  every day. Check out what a Melbourne PC User Group membership can offer you.

MelbPC — Who Are We?

We are a club of nearly 3,000 members, interested in technology, computers, smartphones and similar.  There are many subgroups (SIGs) which meet in various locations, including our headquarters in Moorabbin, other Melbourne suburbs, and a few locations in regional Victoria.  The club commenced in 1984, focused on IBM compatible PCs.  Today we have much broader interests.  Members range from beginner to advanced, we learn from each other, and our motto is:  members helping members.   Our full name is Melbourne PC User Group Inc.  Consider joining.
