How do I join the Quail Creek Computer Club?
First open a browser app such as Safari, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox. Navigate to the club’s website at http://quailcreekcomputerclub.org
You are now looking at the Home Page. We’ll show two ways of joining; your choice will depend on what device you are currently using. If you are using a mouse, you might prefer the first method; if you don’t like drop-down menus or you are using a touchscreen, then the second method might be better for you.
Method 1: in the upper right is the Account menu; under this drop-down menu are two options: Log In or Register / Join.
You can’t log in until you register, so click/tap the bottom choice Register/Join.
Method 2: in the lower left is a block labelled Register / Join (this may be hidden off the screen at the bottom).
Now click/tap the Read More at the bottom of this block.
Either method takes you to the Create an Account screen. There is a brief discussion of dues (you can find more detail below). Then we will take your account info.
Under Account Details
- Username (can be an alias)
- Email Address (this serves as your account ID)
- Enter Password
- Confirm Password (type it again)
Under Profile Details
- First Name
- Last Name
- Phone Number
- Quail Creek Address
- Other Household Members on the Account (using the same email address) – we prefer that members of the same household register separately using different usernames and email addresses.
- Your hardware, software, etc.
- Quail Creek POA waiver
- Computer Club Certification
For the last two, make sure you click the circles next to the “I/we agree” at the top of each section. If you do NOT agree, then you can’t join the club.
When you are finished, click the blue Complete Sign Up box in the bottom right.
In a short time you should receive an email acknowledgment that your request to join is being processed; this email should ask you to click a link back to the club. When you click the link, this will start the activation process. Your status, however, will remain “pending” until your dues are paid.
If you are enrolling before August 31 then dues for the current calendar year (through December 31) are
$20 per household.
Otherwise, if you join in the months of September through December, dues for the remainder of the current calendar year are just $5 IF, at the same time, you prepay full dues for the following year. Hence, in this case
$25 per household
takes you through December 31 of the following year.
In summary, after August 31 dues for new members are $20 per household with an expiration date of December 31, 2019 or $25 per household with an expiration date of December 31, 2020.
If you are enrolling at the Computer Club studio, give your membership fee to a Club Monitor.
If you are enrolling at home, mail your dues to:
1976 E Orchid Lane
For queries, contact
Once dues are paid, your membership will be fully activated and you should receive an email to that effect. You can now sign up for classes.
If you are having trouble with any part of this process, attend one of our Open Labs and one of our monitors will help you.
