There are lots of good reasons to join a user group.
- Make new friends.
Meet people who share your interests and passions. Find a group of friends with whom you can talk about the Mac or just hang out. Go to a monthly meeting
- Get support and enhance your skills.
You’ve got questions. Your local user group has answers. Enhance your computer skills so you can take yourself to a new professional level. Or, create projects for your family or hobbies. User groups can help you work harder or play harder.
Maybe you’ve got some of the answers. User groups are a rewarding way for you to share your expertise. Someone may have helped you learn about technology; now you can repay the favor while meeting new people and making new contacts.
- Save money.
User group members receive exclusive benefits from a large number of companies. As a user group member, you can save money on software and new and used hardware from many of the top vendors.
- Find local resources.
The Internet provides many answers and resources. However, nothing beats the personal connection of meeting with local Mac users and exploring the resources that are available locally — from resellers to technical support to community activities.
- It’s just plain fun.
There’s something about user groups that makes members come back time after time. They love it. They love the people they meet and the opportunities that user groups create. Being a user group member — it’s just plain fun.
