The History of the NNCUG

The Northern Neck Computer Users Group (NNCUG) was created and organized in October 1991. A group of 12 computer users held a first meeting and determined a dues structure and direction of activities for NNCUG.

Soon thereafter several Special Interest Groups (SIGs) were formed. NNCUG then began helping new computer owners to use their computer programs for word processing, spreadsheet, financial accounting, desktop publishing and basic computing.

The Group then created a local electronic bulletin board system (BBS).  This was made available for community use by all computer users. This BBS helped create a pool of  on-line BBS users, giving training and providing information exchange.   The BBS has now been upgraded to web sites.

The NNCUG directly enhanced the Northern Neck's suitability for the Internet and the World Wide Web by spreading the word through training and demonstrations to the public.   Several commercial Internet Service Providers are now supporting the area's computer users.

NNCUG began with its 12 startup members. The membership has now grown to over 220 computer users.   Regular meetings are held monthly, and computer support is offered free of charge Monday through Wednesday of each week at out computer labs.

All area computer users are welcome to attend NNCUG meetings to observe or to join as regular members.  Meetings are held on the second Saturday of every month at the Lancaster Community Library in Kilmarnock. The meeting programs show and demonstrate latest computer equipment, programs and techniques.
