About Us

Membership Interests

Our club consists of about 100 members from the local communities of Yavapai County, Arizona. These areas include Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, Mayer, Dewey-Humboldt and Paulden.

Anyone with an interest in computers is welcome to attend our meetings and join PCS.

Our primary attention is focused on IBM-compatible computers and associated software but anyone with an interest in personal or small business computing will find both basic and advanced information by attending our club's meetings.

Contribution to the Community

PCS President Ray Carlson, PCS Treasurer Edi Taylor-Richards and AWEE Director Mary Bauer.

The Prescott Computer Society is an educational organization for individuals interested in learning more about using PC-based computers. As one facet of its operation, PCS occasionally provides financial support for people interested in moving into computer-based employment, particularly those with limited financial resources.

To further this latter goal, the Board of Directors has decided to give a $500 grant to the Arizona Women's Education and Employment (AWEE) program, a non-profit program located in Yavapai County. The grant is intended to assist with upgrading computer and software resources AWEE uses to help individuals improve their employment opportunities. The Board selected AWEE because of its excellent reputation for providing training and educational assistance to those in need of employment or career advancement.
