Apple User Groups: Making Communities a Little Bit Better

One attribute that seems to set Apple User Groups apart from other hobby clubs is community service. Most groups provide a way to make their community just a little bit better. And, they find a broad range of ways to help. For example:

  • The Charlotte Apple Computer Club offers Tech Learning Days at the Matthews Community Center at least once a month
  • The Village Macintosh User Group runs free New Users Help Classes on the first Tuesday of every month
  • CapMac has worked with their local school district to teach low income parents how to use Apple computers that were donated for home use
  • Mac User Groups dedicated to HAM radio often participate in Field Day disaster readiness drills
  • Washington Apple Pi offers informal Clubhouse Saturdays for troubleshooting and technical questions
  • MUG ONE and many other groups offer lending libraries
  • The Houston Area Apple User Group runs popular swap meets
  • And creative pro groups, including SF Cutter‘s Lynetta Freeman, post job opportunities in the industry and the Creative Pro community supports film festivals and events, including SuperMeets.

And, that is just the start. Does your user group offer community services or outreach efforts?

CES 2019: an Overview by Tom Piper

CES 2019: an Overview
By Tom Piper, UGAB Vendor Liaison and appleJAC Secretary

The Computer Electronic Show (CES) isn’t just a trade show, it’s an annual gathering that is so well orchestrated and run that it just keeps getting bigger and more important to every business and industry. From the OMG (impressive!) to the OMG (seriously?) it’s an event where firms make their best stuff look even bigger, better and days can be filled with excellent educational, informational sessions. Sure it’s all about the technologies and products that will change the way people work and live. The new stuff this year (2019) was impressive, but for the seasoned CES attendee it’s a chance to reconnect with folks and develop new relationships.

On February 5, 2019, I provided a variety of information to attendees at our monthly appleJAC meeting as a followup to my January 7-12, 2019, trip to the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV.
