MacBUS was the first user group in the United States that focused on the business and professional uses of the Macintosh operating system.
The group of 75 members meets monthly at theGiant Food Store
Meetings are held on the last Tuesday evening of each calendar month, starting at 7:00 pm.
These meetings cover the latest cutting-edge software and hardware products, often before their general release to the public. Members get the opportunity to see product demonstrations, and to exchange their own experiences and information for the benefit of the entire group.
Our members come from a wide variety of professions... artists, attorneys, financial analysts, manufacturers, sales professionals, musicians, and writers.
The level of user experience ranges from novice to expert. The meeting atmosphere is relaxed and convivial; the audience is encouraged to an easy and open information exchange.
You've got questions? MacBUS has the answers. Prior to every main presentation, there is a Q&A session, when members with questions or problems can stand and present their concerns to the group.There is no such thing as a stupid question. No matter what your discipline or level of expertise, there is always something to learn.
Meetings are designed around a wide variety of topics -from general systems management, to business and graphics applications, 3D applications, and the Internet. All are presented by top industry specialists from around the country.
The benefits of the organization are many. Some members have acquired business contacts. Others have benefited greatly by getting expert advice on buying software and hardware, or building their systems and networks. MacBUS members have benefited by being at the leading edge of industry developments and updates.
As a paid member, you have an opportunity to win free gifts, and (depending on the evening's presentation) free software from major companies! You may also win free passes to all of the big shows and expos in town.
In addition, you'll be e-mailed Connections - our award-winning online newsletter. It's jam-packed with industry news, views, and stuff you can use.
Make your connection, and join us at our next meeting, we're looking forward to meeting you!
