Up­com­ing Meet­ings

Novem­ber 2019

This month’s meet-up was held on the 9th from 10:00 to noon in Lower Level Meet­ing Rooms 2–3 of the Cleve­land Park li­brary. Our discussion will focus on mail, including some best practices for using Apple’s Mail and Google’s GMail. If your Inbox has hundreds, or even thousands, of e-mails piling up—read or unread—it’s time to learn how to organize, manage, and cull to regain control. Join us at this meet-up to come up to speed on managing e-mail via our discussion: E-Mail Overload, and how to regain (some) control. At this meet-up, NCA-MUG committee members Harvey Simon, Kevin Kelso, and Nicholas Smith will lead the group in discussing some best practices for using Apple Mail and GMail.

December 2019

We take a win­ter break in De­cem­ber, so no meet-up this month. See you in Janu­ary!
