Technology Club expands information for members on the web

Linda Shannon-Hills

A new look and feel for the SBR Technology Club website make searching for information about workshop and classes easier, helpful tips and forums on our favorite SIGs as well as Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

Check out the website: To log into the website, click on MEMBER LOG ON at the top right corner of the website. From there, you can check out the calendar for Open Lab times and topics, classes and workshops. As a member, you are allowed to attend a class or workshop for no charge but we need to have you register for the class or workshop so we have enough computers and learning materials.

You will find new TECH TIPS added each week. As an example:

In the top bar of the website, go to SIGs, then scroll down to Forums and ask to sign-up.
