Member DayPlease join us each month for iPad and technology information, hands-on tips and tricks, Q&A, iPad help, and more. Each session will be approximately one hour. All questions are welcome, as time allows.

Each event is open to the entire community. For your convenience, we will hold two meetings a month about each topic and try to rotate locations. One session each month will be during the school day and the other in the evening. Refreshments will be served! Come learn and explore the amazing things you can do with your technology!

Please sign up! We encourage all participants to sign up in advance so we know how many devices to provide and to add extra helping hands if necessary…and of course to plan the snacks! Please fill out the registration form. We are very interested in knowing what topics are of special interest for you, so please give us your input.
