National Capital Apple Macintosh Users Group (NCA-MUG)

NOTE: Until further notice, we have suspended all of NCA-MUG's in-person, meetups.  All members should check here for posts to NCA-MUG's group forum, on each of the Fridays prior to each of the 'Second Saturday's of each month (except August and December), for our meetup links for virtual group meetups.

National Capital Apple Macintosh Users Group, (NCA-MUG) is comprised of Mac enthusiasts based in Washington, DC. Founded in January 2007, NCA-MUG provides the DC Mac community with a place where members can meet others interested in "things Apple" and learn how to make the most use of their Macs, Apple software apps, and other Apple-related products.

We try to schedule our meetups on the second Saturday each month, from 10 a.m. to noon--except in August and December, when we do not meet. Meetup notices are posted here.

At our meetups, we learn from one another and enjoy a wide variety of interesting, informative, and practical discussions on Apple- / Mac-related topics.

Topics for discussion and presentation at our meetups have included occasional presentations from our local Apple representative and other prominent members of the tech community; popular Apps for Mac and iOS devices, with occasional demos; Mac back-up; Mac security; review and use of popular third-party software and hardware; a wide variety of useful tips and tricks; News You Can Use; and much more.

NCA-MUG welcomes members from beginners to the highly advanced. Our goal is to welcome and accommodate a diverse group of interests and abilities.

In addition to opportunities for members to share and learn at our regular meetups, NCA-MUG's online community forum was created as a resource for all members. This forum is intended as a place for members to share ideas and Mac-related news, and to seek and offer advice. Each member's NCA-MUG mail settings for this group MUST be set to receive all group mail. (Note: NCA-MUG is a participatory group, and thus, the selection of 'No Mail' or 'Special' for a mail option, is not acceptable. Abusers will be banned from the group.) The stated focus of NCA-MUG's group forum, is on bridging meetups and allowing Mac-related contact between members using Apple devices.  All other use of the forum and group is not permitted. Neither the all-volunteer Committee nor the group is, nor shall be, responsible for the content of member posts. We are a friendly group. We will not tolerate adversarial or mean-spirited posts. 

In the spirit of friendship, kindly sign your posts.  Also, kindly refrain from posts which ONLY include links (especially non-Mac-related links). And, do not post links without writing your accompanying, related commentary.

We welcome new members. To become a member of NCA-MUG, it is necessary to join NCA-MUG's group. To join this group, use the 'Join' button, and tell us your name, where you are located, and what you do with your Macintosh computer. Do NOT elect 'Special' or 'No Mail' as your intended Mail setting.
