The seventh User Group University will be held in conjunction with January’s Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, Calif. Registration for the event is now open.
Produced by the Apple User Group Advisory Board and the Macworld/UGU Planning Team, User Group University is an event for Mac User Group (MUG) leaders. User Group University will be held on Monday, Jan. 7. User group leaders from around the world will attend the day-long series of seminars and workshops to get new ideas on how to strengthen and improve their organizations, according to Chuck Joiner, editor-in-chief of the MUG Center, an online resource for user groups.
Early Bird registration is US$39.95 per person through Nov. 21 and $54.95 afterward. Pre-registration ends on Dec. 28. Since space is limited, so early registration is recommended.
“Students are a vital and growing part of the Macintosh User Group community,” Joiner said. “Student user group leaders are encouraged to attend User Group University to meet with their peers and become more involved in the campus user group movement. A special student discount offer is available.”
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.

The Apple User Group Advisory Board is a group of leaders who run successful MUGs in their communities. The group is chartered with providing feedback and advice on issues related to the Apple User Group Program.
