About UAUG

Who we are

A non-profit group of like-minded people who share an interest in Macintosh computers, iPads, iPhones, and other Apple devices. We exist to share knowledge about them, their peripherals, and their applications. Whether you’re a beginner or a polished expert, the UAUG can make your computing more enjoyable.

What we do

We maintain this informational website as well as a members-only discussion forum on Discord.com, and we conduct monthly meetings. The purpose of our activities is to help and encourage our members and others to use Apple products and other products that work with them more effectively.

When we meet

Our monthly membership meeting is held on the fourth Tuesday of each month, with the exception of July (when there is no meeting) and December (when our annual holiday party is held on the third Wednesday). Membership meetings are held at the Dunham Library in Whitesboro, NY, and open with a question and answer period in which one-on-one help is available starting at 6pm, followed by a presentation that generally begins around 7pm and wraps up around 8:15pm. Door prize giveaways for members in attendance round out the meeting, and we are generally done by 8:30pm. The meetings consist of demonstrations, discussions (both group and one-on-one), and just plain good chat and sharing of knowledge. 

Can't attend in person? Meetings may also be attended online using our members-only server on Discord.com. In addition to enabling members to virtually attend meetings, the server also enables members to submit questions and give answers that can be seen only by other UAUG members, view resources referred to at meetings, and send private messages to other members. Links for joining our meetings are included in the monthly newsletter that is emailed to all members. Join us!

Our Executive Board meets on the third Wednesday of each month—except in July and December—online on its Discord server. Board meetings are from 7:30-9pm.
