MEETINGS

Our club has a Members-Only in-person Help Session at the Saddlebrook Rec Center on the 1st Tuesday afternoon of each month except over the Summer months and holidays.  These in-person Help sessions depend on the number of volunteers we can get as helpers. We are VERY short-handed in that department.  Please let us know if you can lend a hand.  If not enough resources are available for a particular month, we will only have our Zoom Help session.

We also have an online Presentation each month via Zoom – TVAUG TUESDAYS at 1:30 as described below.  These Zoom meetings typically last about an hour. Details about upcoming meetings are emailed to our membership via MailPoet. In addition, meeting details are in our Forum on its calendar.

NOTE: The Presentation meetings are usually recorded and can be accessed on our Presentations page a couple of days later. We DO NOT record the Help or Special Interest Group meetings.

TVAUG MEETINGS

DATE
TVAUG MEETINGS INFO
1st TUESDAY
DATE:April 2 Saddlebrook Rec Center
FORMAT: Members help each other with issues on their Apple devices.

If you have a problem with your device, you can join us and your fellow members who will work with you to look for a solution. There are a few things to be aware of if you plan on attending so please read these carefully:
 
First and foremost --KNOW YOUR PASSWORDS!!  In addition to the passwords to get into your device and any applications you are having a problem with, you need to know your Villages ID# and password to get on thevillages.net WiFi network.  Your ID# is on the front of your Villages ID card.  You may want to drop in any Rec Center ahead of time to make sure you can login to The Villages WiFi network with your ID/PW. 

NOTE:
We typically do not have time to help you find/reset your passwords.  If you don't know them, please reset them them BEFORE coming in or else we will not be able to help.

Our HELP sessions are ONLY for members with active memberships.  Please login to the TVAUG.ORG website and double-check your renewal date and renew on-line if necessary.  The Villages WiFi is not encrypted so we cannot take new memberships or renewals in Rec Centers.  RENEW ON-LINE BEFORE THE MEETING! 

Please Join or Renew here if necessary prior to coming.
We DO NOT take new memberships or renewals in-person. It is all done online now!
Please check your renewal date — it’s under your My Account Info here.
6:30-8:00 PM
NOTE: Please do not come expecting dedicated 1-on-1 help for the whole session.  We typically only spend a max of 10-15 minutes with each member so that we can accommodate as many as possible.  Be considerate of your fellow members.  Remember, this is a Help session - not a training session.  If you have a problem that will take more than those 10-15 minutes, we will refer you to our 24x7 groups.io support forum, in-person meetings like AUDI, MUD, and the TV iPad Club listed below or in-home support.

We are in dire need of Helpers for these In-Person sessions. Please use the Contact Us form here if you can help. Sorry but if we do not have enough helpers, the meeting will be canceled.
