Also, the deadline for User Group University preregistration is fast approaching. You can register on the Acteva registration page for US$35 until 7 am. (Pacific) on January 1. After that, registration will only be available onsite for $50. Space in this year's class is limited.

The complete syllabus and faculty roster for User Group University (UGU) San Francisco 2003 has been announced. And Shawn King, the host of the Your Mac Life and Your Mac Life Xtended Internet radio shows, has been announced as the special guest keynote speaker.

"Shawn, a former user group president, is a staunch advocate and supporter of MUGs," Joiner said. "He has been engaged on the ongoing Your Mac Life Tour of Macintosh User Groups throughout the United States in the past six months. He is a popular, entertaining speaker and will set the tone for the biggest and best User Group University to date."

UGU is a day long seminar designed to assist Macintosh User Group (MUG) leaders in managing, operating and growing their organizations. It's open to all MUG leaders and interested parties. Faculty members for UGU 2003 come from a wide range of MUGs (Mac User Groups) and from other areas of the Mac community, including three Apple presenters, according to Chuck Joiner, editor-in-chief of The MUG Center, an online resource for Mac User Groups.

User Group University will be held at the Argent Hotel (50 Third Street) in San Francisco, California, on Monday, January 6, prior to the start of the Macworld Conference & Expo. Registration is limited to four members per group, and attendees must register separately.

MUGs are good places for making new friends, finding Mac-loving buddies, boning up your technical expertise, finding solutions to technical problems, and sometimes finding a good deal on used hardware.
