The first of the Macintosh User Group activities for the Mac Design Conference in Chicago has been announced: “Join Apple User Group Advisory Board members Lesa Snider and Lorene Romero in the Birds Of A Feather session, ‘Why User Groups Are A Great Resource.’ During this MUG-enlightening session you’ll learn of amazing discounts exclusively for user group members on the latest software, hardware, reference books, conference/expo admissions, and more. Discover the bountiful rewards of reaching out and connecting with your computing community, and start reaping the riches of networking, information exchange, fellowship, and plenty of good, old-fashioned MUG fun.” The Mac Design Conference takes place May 28-30.
