The New Bern Computer Users Group (NBCUG) was started in 1994 and is an informal, unstructured group of people having a common interest in personal computers.
Whatever happens at NBCUG meetings happens because of volunteers. The group is always open to suggestions, including how to organize better. Ideas, however, always seem to require volunteers.
NBCUG meets quarterly on the third Saturday of the first month, of each quarter, unless a cancellation occurs due to bad weather or by member vote.
Meetings end at 10:30 a.m.
To help pay for the $150 rental of the meeting room, non-members are charged $3.00 admission at the door for any meeting attended, or they can elect to register and pay the requisite dues per the schedule below:

Since the NBCUG started in 1994 with 18 attendees, meetings have grown in size. Now in 2012 we are up to an average of more than 50 attendees.
