Apple Consultants Network
Members of the Apple Consultants Network are often excited to present to user groups. These experts can provide dynamic presentations, up-to-date information and access to some of the latest technology. Create partnerships with ACN members in your area.
Apple authorized resellers also enjoy creating partnerships with local user groups. Apple Specialists or other resellers in your area may help with presenters and equipment.
Local Universities and Schools
Consider inviting students, faculty, or administrators to present at your meeting. Not only would these presenters do a great job, but they could also promote your group to the school.
Many companies send presenters to user groups whenever possible. Others can send demonstration materials and scripts that can help you offer exciting, informative meetings.
Often, some of the best presentations are from your own user group members. They can use resources from Apple available through Apple Sales Web, or they can showcase their own material.
