He is an information technology professional of 20+ years. Currently, he is a Senior Identity & Access Management Specialist with Merck, & Co. For the past decade in IT, Lance’s focus has been predominantly in the domain of information security. His work has included mostly large enterprises in the energy, insurance, hospitality, and health care industries.

Please join us. The Personal Computer Club of Charlotte [PC3] meets the second Thursday of each month (next meeting Thursday, September 12th) in the Pritchard Bldg. at Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church, 1117 South Blvd in Charlotte. Our meeting will be in the Library this month. Come to the usual entrance, but instead of going to the Fellowship Hall, take the double doors to the left in the foyer and come down the hall to the first room on the left. That’s the Library. We’ll put up some signs.  The meeting gets under way promptly at 7:00pm. We generally start with a brief review of current PC issues in the news. Following that we have a presentation on a topic of interest to PC or Smart Phone users and wrap up by 9:00pm. Initial attendance at the meeting is free and open to the public.

In addition to our General Meeting at 7:00PM we get together for dinner at 5:45pm. We generally hold our “Eating before the Meeting” at the church. Six or seven folks showed up at previous meetings, had supper and talked tech until it was time to start the General Meeting. The club will provide iced tea and cookies for desert. Anything else, pizza, burger, sandwich will have to be brought in by the participants. We suggest that everyone interested stop on their way to the meeting to buy themselves diner at the Sandwich Shop, Fuel Pizza, McDonalds, etc. and bring it with them to the church.
