National Capital Apple Macintosh Users Group

NOTE: Until further notice, we have suspended all of NCA-MUG's in-person, meet-ups.  All members should check here for posts to NCA-MUG's group forum, at minimum during  the ten days prior to the 'Second Saturday's of each month, for updates on both in-person AND virtual group meet-ups.

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 and other Apple-related products.

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

At our meet-ups, 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 meet-ups have included occasional presentations from our local Apple representative; popular Apps for Mac and iOS devices; back-up; Mac security; review and use of popular third-party software and hardware; tips and tricks; and much more.

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

In addition to opportunities for members to share and learn at our regular meet-ups, 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, 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. The stated focus of NCA-MUG's group forum, is on bridging meet-ups and allowing Mac-related contact between members using Apple devices.  All other use 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), without 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 who you are, where you are located, and what you do with your Macintosh computer.
