Representatives from AppleWorks, education, and Maryland user groups are featured in this week’s edition of the
User Group Report. The online report is hosted by Chuck Joiner, editor-in-chief of
The MUG Center, an online resource for MUGs (Mac User Groups).
In this week’s edition, Warren Williams and Cathy Merrit of the AppleWorks Users Group talk about what makes up the world’s largest user group, what they offer members, what they have in common with other user groups and how they help support community user groups.
David Lawrence of the Pilot Butte Technology Users talks about educational institution-based user groups, how they fit in with his school district, and how user group experience can be a big benefit when applying for a job. Arno Drucker of the Maryland Apple Corps discusses his group’s longevity, their upcoming 25th anniversary celebration with Steve “Woz” Wozniak and more.
In other MUG news, Daniel East, President of The Mid-Atlantic Macintosh User Groups Team, will visit the
New Jersey Macintosh Apple Users Group on Wednesday, May 14. As part of MaMUGs’ showcase of “user group friendly” developers, East will present “Fun Stuff for Your Mac: Great Freeware, Shareware and Commercial Software for OSX.”
