Agency is the given or acquired right to speak on the behalf of an idea, organization, or person, even if that person is you. In the event that you have ever felt the ability to speak on your own behalf, you have had Agency. Through powers (hierarchical, monetary, expertise, et al.), safety, brand, dominance, and other contingencies, we gain or lose Agency. With practice and confidence, we can gain superpowers.

Come and learn how to use Social Media to gain or grant Agency with confidence.

We mourn the loss of friends and Board Members Joel May and Kim Goldenberg.

There are a group of club members who regularly attend PPCUG meetings. However, the past Club Leadership including those who have been arranging meetings need help. We are looking for volunteers to step up and take a leadership role.

Directions to the Meeting

Meetings of an organization at any of the facilities of the Mercer County Library System in no way implies endorsement of its programs.
