Apple’s User Group Advisory Board, in association with Macworld Expo, is offering special discounts and free registration to Mac user group (MUG) members for this summer’s Macworld Expo in New York.
The board is a group of leaders who run successful user groups in their communities. The group is chartered with providing feedback and advice to Apple on issues related to User Group Program.
Regarding Macworld New York, Mac User Group members can register for a free Exhibits Only pass (a US$29 value). They can also get 15 percent (about $194) off a Conference Package by using the User Group Priority Code. The priority code for both offers can be obtained from an Apple authorized Macintosh User Group leader.
The User Group Advisory Board is also encouraging user group members to attend User Group University New York, a one day conference for Apple user group leaders. A third User Group Breakfast has been added to the Macworld New York event schedule. Finally, special room rates are available at The New Yorker hotel for MUG members. You can get details on all these events and offers at the MUG Center Web site.
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. For more info on MUGs, and to find the location of the one nearest you, go to Apple’s User Group Web page.
MWNY 2001 will run July 17-20 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. You can register by June 18 to save up to $150 on the on-site registration prices. For complete pricing and registration info, go to the show’s registration site.
