All users of QuickBooks are invited to an informal "user group" in which members help each other solve issues. The group will meet at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, May 8, at Cook County Higher Ed. Cost is $5. Karl Hansen, group leader, advises that the top issue on the agenda this time will be whether to continue meeting. Few people have turned up the past few meetings. So if you are interested in keeping this group going, even if you can only come occasionally, Wednesday's meeting is a must.
