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 to discuss a wide variety of technical issues. (Sometimes we meet at a different time, see this in the schedule below.) Meetings are open to anyone interested in the topic(s). The group has an email list (see how to join below) for announcements and discussions.
The LCTG grew out of “The Computer Group” which existed prior to the opening of the Lexington Community Center, which is where we meet now.
Members of the group come from all walks of life, education, and previous experiences. Talks are presented by members of the group as well as outside experts on a variety topics of interest to the group. There is a schedule for future talks as well as a record of previous talks, below.
Many of the meetings feature an outside expert; others are led by group members.
Time is set aside, approximately once a month, for short talks and for members to bring
questions or problems to the membership. If you could present a topic of interest to the group, please contact us at
Members can be active, attending most of the meetings, or contributing to the discussion list, or can merely take advantage of the material being posted regarding our talks. There is no requirement for living in Lexington, and although the group started in the Lexington Senior Center there is no requirement to be a senior. The technical level of the talks varies considerably, making much of the material of interest to those with more modest technical abilities.

Given the current Covid-19 situation, presentations are being held online, weekly, on Wednesdays at 10am. See info on upcoming meetings below.
While we anticipate returning to the Lexington Community Center for our meetings sometime in the future, for obvious reasons we cannot predict when this will happen. The online format is working however. If you would like to join the meeting, you will need to join the group (see above) to get emails with the meeting connection information. For security reasons we cannot post this here on this site so either contact a member or join the group – it's free and painless.
