The Monterey Bay Users Group – Personal Computer (MBUG-PC) is a California non-profit public benefit corporation organized for educational purposes. MBUG-PC evolved from a small group of new PC owners who got together in May 1983 to share their new-found knowledge with each other. This tradition continues although there are now over 100 members in the group. Incorporation was completed, and California non-profit status granted April 26, 1988. Tax-Exempt status as a publicly supported charity (501c3) was granted in October 1989. In addition to the association with others of similar interests, the benefits of joining MBUG-PC include educational meetings, an informative, award winning, monthly newsletter, and technical support by a group of knowledgeable MBUG-PC members. MBUG-PC welcomes all those who want to become more involved in the use of personal computers and are willing to actively participate in club activities to pursue that goal.
