Computer Pals for Seniors Epping Inc. is a community based Computer Club and is a member of ASCCA, which is the recognised National Peak Body for seniors and technology.
We draw our members from Epping, NSW and surrounding suburbs.
We currently have approx 150 members and invite seniors to join us. As a Club, we aim to achieve a friendly and social experience and have the following stated objective:
“To create a pleasant and non-threatening learning environment for members to learn to the extent that they require, or are able to achieve.”
The Club has been fortunate to have had a team of experienced managers and administrators on its committee, which has enabled it to be soundly established and operated from the outset in 2000.
The Club has competent voluntary trainers and helpers, who have enabled us to have fully structured training classes with written notes. Classes operate for several days a week, based on School terms, and may be for a full term or for a lesser number of classes. We also have regular “Interest Groups” on a variety of subjects.
Each month, on the 3rd Wednesday at 10.00 am, we have a General Meeting which is attended by about 40 to 60 members. At these meetings we usually have a Guest Speaker on either a computer related topic, or one from the local community, speaking on topics of general interest. A donation of $2 covers your morning tea.
