The New York Amateur Computer Club was established in March 1975 with the mission to further education in diverse areas of personal computing. The presentations at monthly meetings cover various platform computing systems and range from in-depth technical subjects to general overviews with broad appeal.
General meetings are always held on the second Thursday of each month and start promptly at 7 PM with announcements followed by a period of Questions and Answers called Random Access in which members and visitors are encouraged to ask technical questions or ask for advice on purchasing or using software, hardware, and related issues. There is a short break before the main presentation to enable attendees to meet and greet each other and to buttonhole people to get more detailed answers to specific questions. As an alternate to the main meeting, if a few people are interested, a new- or prospective-user group meeting is held to assist beginners.
The general meetings are open without charge to the public.
We meet at New York University (NYU) in the Silver Building (the main administration building) each second Thursday of the month. The website of the club, www.nyacc.org has the latest information regarding meeting location and subject of the main presentation. Room location is always available at the main floor security desk of the building. NYU requires some form of photo ID (driverís license, school ID, Corporate card, etc) to enter the building.
