About

The Computers Are Easy User Group, or CAEUG, is dedicated to the use and understanding of computers and related subjects. We have an open forum where all levels of computer users can meet to exchange information, ideas and share knowledge about computers. We encourage questions at our meetings and work together to solve problems members are having. We share new ideas on how to improve our computing skills and put on monthly programs covering all areas of computing subjects, either with a guest speaker or one of our own members speaking.

We meet once a month at the Glenside Public Library, 25 East Fullerton in Glendale Heights, Illinois, at 9:30 a.m.. If you would like more information, drop our membership folks an e-mail.
