The Licking County Computer Society (LCCS) was founded in 1985 as the Newark Area Computer Club and incorporated in 1988 as a non-profit organization. The purpose was to bring together local personal computer enthusiasts to further computer education and understanding. We meet in a congenial atmosphere where users of personal computers may exchange ideas and information on existing hardware and software. In 2015 the organization decided to expand it’s service area and it’s scope regarding technology. So it changed the name to the East-Central Ohio Technology Users Club (ECOTUC). It will continue doing some legal business as the Licking County Computer Society (LCCS).

Our club’s main meeting, which is held at 2:30 p.m. on the third Sunday of each month, features speakers who are computer industry representatives and/or knowledgeable enthusiasts. The general public is cordially invited.
In addition to the general meeting, special “Help Desks” meetings are held monthly to provide mutual assistance in resolving software/hardware problems and to discuss new developments. Members frequently help each other on an informal basis.
Our membership ranges from novices to experienced computer experts. Novices are especially encouraged to join our group. Another benefit is the ECOTUC newsletter, The Random Bits, which contains reviews and other informative articles written by members.
ECOTUC has three important ongoing projects: Computer Refurbishing, Computer Recycling Events, and the ECOTUC/LCAP Teaching Program. These volunteer activities are always looking for more members to help out. See the Projects page for details and contacts.
The East-Central Ohio Technology Users Club is a member of APCUG, an international association of technology and computer user groups. Information about them can be found at their official website.
