HAL-PC Member Benefits
Special Interest Groups
HAL-PC hosts dozens of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that meet at headquarters to learn about and share information on topics from Access to Web Design. Some special SIGs such as the Build or Buy SIG assist members both in understanding what to ask for if they want a custom system, or ordering the components and, under supervision, assembling their own systems. We feel that this in particular fosters confidence in the owner and a stronger understanding of computers. Guests may attend a SIG meeting once as a courtesy.
Volunteer Help Committee
Our volunteer help committee epitomizes that goal by making themselves available to answer HAL-PC members' questions about software, hardware and other computer-related issues.
