MEETINGS:

Monthly Club meetings include a short business session, general announcements, and speakers covering a wide range of useful information for computer users.  Meetings are held the First Tuesday of the month from 7:00 pm to 8:45 pm in the Christian Life Center,  Community Church at Tellico Village.

 SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS (SIG):

Mac computer users (iMac, Macbook, Macbook Pro, Mac Mini) have an active SIG for sharing information.  We offer the opportunity for TVCUC members to create other groups of interest.  Other potential groups are photography, genealogy, cooking, or any topics that involve computers, smart phones, or tablets.

FIRST LEVEL SUPPORT:

For Club Members we provide no-charge First Level Support (FLS) service to resolve computer software and connection problems.

CALL US BEFORE YOU GET SO FRUSTRATED THAT YOU WANT TO DO THIS! ===>

To get First Level Support, Members can submit a request form here, or call our support line at: (865) 408-8223 and leave a message.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS/OFFICERS:

Officers are elected annually while Directors serve staggered two-year terms.  There are many opportunities for involvement in Club activities.  The Board meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 2:30 p.m. in the Chota Recreation Center, Room D.  The Board meetings are open to all Club members.  A complete list of officers, directors, and committees may be found on the www.tvcuc.org website.

EDUCATION:

The Club provides informal educational opportunities in Cyber Security, computer applications, hardware, and software.  Presentations are conducted for members interested in various subjects and interests in addition to open Question & Answer sessions.

COMMUNICATIONS:

The TVCUC publishes a monthly newsletter providing insight into upcoming monthly meetings, offers suggestions for computer applications, and other related topics. 

Additionally we issue interim “Flash Bulletins” forwarding news of immediate interest.

TOURS:

Several interesting tours are sponsored during the year.  Examples: Climate Change Science Institute, Supercomputing and Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge National Labs (ORNL), Mastercraft, and TVA River Forecast. 

We are always looking for new and interesting tours for our members.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH:

We are proud to sponsor the Microsoft certified Technology Access Program (TAP).   TAP is a Registered Microsoft Refurbisher and provides refurbished donated computers loaded with Windows Operating Systems for distribution through non-profit organizations.

 Club volunteers evaluate the donated equipment and either refurbish or properly dispose of the components.   The refurbished components are cleaned, hard drives securely reformatted, operating system and software are loaded and tested.  The entire System (computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer and speakers) is made available to a school or Family Assistance Organization to place in a home where no computer currently exists.

All expenses incurred by TAP are directly related to the preparation of the computer systems.

You can volunteer to assist in refurbishing upon joining the Club.

Individuals and organizations can donate equipment such as computers, printers, cartridges, etc. to TAP and may qualify for tax benefits.  A cash donation to help with TAP operating expenses would  be greatly appreciated.
