About New Bern Computer Users Group

logo trans 200sLocated in historic New Bern, North Carolina, 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.

Since the NBCUG started in 1994 with 18 attendees, meetings have steadily grown in size. As of 2006 there were 396 members with 337 on the NBCUG e-mail list. Being able to send a message to all members using the club's broadcast e-mail address is an invaluable way for members to get help with a computer problem.

NBCUG has rarely had a meeting without a new member showing up. Come and join us. For further information, have a look at the sections below. (Click the gray header to expand the section.)
