    The meetings start with a 15-minute President’s Forum, which includes club business, technology information, and “Members Asking Members” which is an open floor for IT problems and solutions. A guest speaker follows this. We have an IT expert or a technical representative of a major manufacturer do presentations and sometimes club members.

    IT-Pro User Group has a listserv to help our members stay in touch. It allows members to seek help from other members on tough questions. Special announcements and meeting reminders also channel through it.

    IT-Pro User Group meetings are open to all IT professionals and others interested in IT technologies.
