  History

Early in 2005 the Rotary Club of Maclean called a meeting of seniors to gauge support for the proposed formation of a Seniors Computer Club. Some 26 seniors attended and after presentations by John Wells from Rotary, a Steering Committee was established. This new committee was to be sponsored by Rotary Club of Maclean.

Australian Seniors Computing Clubs Association (ASCCA) gave valuable advice on the need to apply for Incorporation and to register a name for the club. This action resulted in Clarence Valley Senior Computer Club (CVSCC) and incorporation being granted. The Rotary Club of Maclean negotiated with Clarence Valley Council for the provision of several computers that were surplus to their requirements. The CVSCC after several failed negotiations finally obtained the use of the Showground Pavilion and set rental and conditions of use.

The Showground soon become an unsuitable site due to conflict with other users and a search resumed for a more suitable location. By chance the club was offered a room at the old Council Chambers and this was quickly taken up with a new rental agreement drawn up.

After an uncertain beginning CVSCC now occupy the Council rooms and enjoy a modern training facility and excellent cooperation with the Council.

The Club gives credit to Clarence Valley Council for their ongoing support and Rotary Club of Maclean for initially promoting the need to establish a facility for seniors within the Valley. We are now a able to run the Club with a dedicated Committee and thank the members for their ongoing support.

Meetings

Management Committee meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 2pm in the CWA Rooms at 40 River Street Maclean - next door to the Maclean RSL Club.


 

Help Needed

The club is always looking for Leaders to relieve the workload of current Leaders who are often conducting multiple classes a week.

A volunteer Leader who does not meet membership criteria (i.e. not old enough for membership) can be made an Honorary member.

A Leader in our organization does not require certification. They merely have to be computer literate and feel confident they are capable of passing on their skills to Club Members.
