For Vendors

Membership Information

Members of PCC include professionals in the computer industry and other professions, users, developers and novices interested in the use of personal computers. Operating systems used include Windows, OS/2 and Linux. Members range in age from 12 years old to 80 plus. About twenty percent of the members are women.

The main meetings are held on the first Friday of each month. Members have a high level of sophistication with respect to both hardware and software. Members have served as beta and usability testers for many vendors.


We can provide an overhead display and LCD projector capable of displaying 1024x780 on a large screen. Main meetings are held in a large room at the Calvary Baptist Church, 28924 Ruus Road, Hayward California.

PC Community has hosted larger meetings for special events such as product roll-outs in conjunction with vendors such as Microsoft. In 1996, PC Community hosted a preview of NT 4.0 for Microsoft with about 400 people in attendance from all over the Bay Area.

Smaller meetings are held at the Clubhouse and in members' homes and offices. Those meetings are more focused and are conducted more like workshops than meetings.


Hayward is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, approximately 40 minutes from San Francisco and Silicon Valley by car, and 20 minutes from the Oakland Airport. We are close to several other large user groups, including Diablo Valley PC Users Group, which meets the night before PC Community, making it possible to coordinate presentations with both groups to do two presentations.

Product Reviews

In addition, members review products provided by vendors and from their own purchases. The reviews are published in our print newsletter and some are available on-line to visitors to our web site. The newsletter is also distributed to other user groups who have permission to reprint reviews.
