Meeting Ideas: Final Cut Pro X, Macbook and More

Need a presentation for your group’s next meeting? Ask your group’s ambassador about Apple Sales Training Online (ASTO). From prepackaged demos to Apple materials that you can use to create customized presentations, ASTO has it all.

For example, ASW offers many ready-to-go packages, including demos, presentation scripts and demo instructions. For new releases, they generally offer basic product tip sheets, demo ideas and presentations immediately after the product has been announced. On April 13, ASW added a ready-to-use presentation covering the new newest version of Final Cut Pro X (L519868A-en_US ) that can be paired with ASTO’s Final Cut Pro X Top Features – Demo Guide, for your group’s next meeting. A few days earlier ASW posted a presentation you can download covering the new MacBook (L539718A-en_US) if your group is interested in learning more about the MacBook. Want to cover in-depth technical information? There are technical training sections just waiting to be your group’s next meeting topic.

Ambassadors: April is a great month to check in with ASTO!

Meeting Ideas: Attracting Youth by Sarah Friedlander Garcia

Over the years, some of the best ideas for user group leadership have come from the worldwide community of user group officers, the hard working folk who ensure that their groups survive and thrive.

One of this month’s topics comes from Sarah Friedlander Garcia, a past member of the Apple’s Campus Groups Advisory Board, who has gone on to great success with Mozilla and AIR802, and is now Marketing Manger for W-Systems Corp. In 2004, she was one of the featured speakers at User Group University during the Macworld Expo in San Francisco, offering ideas for welcoming young people into the user group community.

Thanks Sarah!

How-To: Using the Featured Vendor Presentation Program

The Apple User Group Resource Team introduced a new vendor program a few months ago. User group leaders who used our vendor program in the past saw it as a discount offer based program. This aspect of our vendor program still exists. In revitalizing this program, we had one goal. It was to offer user groups presentation resources from vendors to use for meetings. The idea was a “meeting-in-a-box.” The vendor could provide the needed information in print material, online presentations, video tutorials, or remote presentations. So how do you take advantage to the program? This how-to will take you through the process of using the program, working with the vendors in the program and using the resource materials offered.
