The objectives of this organization are to provide a forum for users of Macintosh® computers and all other products from Apple. Our members and guests exchange information and ideas. We assist each other in solving common problems. We attempt to expand our individual and collective knowledge in the use of computers, software and peripherals. We meet and learn from professionals in the field, and benefit from the availability of public domain programs and cooperative purchasing.
We provide education, training and development in the use and application of computers, peripherals and software. There are numerous ONLINE sources for individual learning, not the least is APPLE. We will provide on our web site and via email a great number of links and sources for personal learning such as Apple Seminars.
Our audience includes members, the community, the general public, school children, teachers, physically or mentally challenged people and disadvantaged youth. We encourage the use of personal computers for entertainment, home offices and scholastic, research, communications and commercial purposes.
For these purposes we hold meetings, demonstrations, classes provided when there is a demand and presentations. We also have a newsletter, Apple Sauce which every member receives by mail and electronically.
The members of SAMUG are diverse. They include young students and retirees, working men and women of all ages, teachers, computer professionals, artists and graphics designers.
