Phoenixville Tech Group

programs Tech Group

The Phoenixville Tech Group brings technology users together to share knowledge and experience. Everyone is welcome!  We do not have any prerequisites, just come, ask questions, bring your tech issues, and enjoy.

User groups are founded on the principle of “members helping members.” We are particularly interested in helping those who have limited or no experience with a computer so they may participate in the rapid transition from traditional means of communications and commerce to the Internet.  While a listed presentation topic may not be of particular interest, the discussion often branches into other topics of interest to those attending. There is no meeting where you don’t learn something new.

The group meets online Mondays from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM, and from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Glenn Musser is the Group Facilitator.  The group is free and open to the public. For a schedule of session topics, to obtain the link for the next session on Google Meet, or more information, see www.phoenixvilletg.com, or Click here to Email.
