Why would I join YMUG?

Get support and enhance your skills

You’ve got questions. YMUG members want to help you find the answers. Enhance your computer skills so you can take yourself to a new professional level. Or, create projects for your family or hobbies. User groups can help you work harder or play harder.

Save money

From time to time, YMUG receives exclusive benefits from a large number of companies. As a user group member, you can save money on software and new and used hardware from many of the top vendors. We also have a members-only classified ads section where you can buy, sell or swap goods and services cheaply.

Find local resources

The Internet provides many answers and resources. However, nothing beats the personal connection of meeting with local Mac users and exploring the resources that are available locally — from resellers to technical support to community activities.

Make new friends and contacts

Meet people who share your interests and passions. Find a group of friends with whom you can talk about the Mac or just hang out. Go to a monthly meeting or to special events, or just make new contacts online.

Put something back by teaching others

Maybe you’ve got some of the answers. YMUG is a rewarding way for you to share your expertise. Someone may have helped you learn about technology; now you can repay the favour while meeting new people and making new contacts.

And why YMUG, rather than another group?

Because we are the biggest in the UK, with the potential for more support and answers to your questions; no group offers more by way of services and facilities; and we don’t charge the earth!
