Information for Speakers

A Bit About Us

The Lexington Computer and Technology Group (LCTG) is a volunteer, no-cost, not-for-profit, just-for-fun-and-education organization that meets most Wednesdays from 10am to 11:30am using Zoom. Many members are accomplished PhD's, MD's, and Professionals who present to the group on a variety of topics, but we welcome and in fact encourage others to speak on topics familiar to them. Meetings are open to anyone interested in the topic(s). The group has an email list just for announcements and discussions and the list is moderated to prevent spammers.

Speaker specifics

  • We record meetings. Let us know if this is not OK with you.
  • We place recordings on YouTube for public viewing. Let us know if this is not OK with you.
    • Often a speaker doesn't want the meeting recorded. Sometimes a speaker is OK with recording but not posted for the public on YouTube.
  • Meetings start at 10am.
  • You are encouraged to join around 9:45am to allow time to correct any connection or presentation issues.
  • If you want to practice ahead of time using Zoom for your presentation, let us know and we'll arrange time to work with you.
