The MUG Center, an online resource for MUGs (Mac User Groups).
In the latest User Group Report, Chris Breen, author of “Secrets of the iPod” and “Mac 911” talks about why he and
Macworld magazine are making parts of his “Mac 911” column available for publication in MUG newsletters.
Sandy Foderick of the User Group Advisory Board discusses the new Regional Liaison Team, why MUG leaders should connect with them, the benefits and information the team members will offer and why keeping your group’s information on the Apple Web site current is important.
The Advisory Board is a group of leaders who run successful user groups in their communities. Chartered with providing feedback and advice on issues related to the Apple User Group Program, they’ve also volunteered to organize and create programs and events that benefit the entire user group community.
Gary Adcock of the Chicago Final Cut Pro Users Group outlines his credentials as the new Regional Liaison Team member dedicated to Final Cut Pro User Groups and talks about his own group and their presence at the

Ty Beckman of Western Illinois University Macintosh Users Group profiles his organization, what they offer, how they’re organized and what they bring to their campus. Finally, Lorene Romero of the User Group Advisory Board will outline the latest in offers strictly for MUG members.
