The Villages Apple User Group, based in The Villages, Florida, was founded in 1999 and membership has grown to well over 1,000. Members’ experience and expertise with Apple computers and devices run the gamut from newbie to guru.
TVAUG offers four meetings per month (three programs and one help session), a comprehensive newsletter called Slices, three websites, and a private Google Group forum. Programs represent a continuous cycle of learning to engage both beginners and veterans. As members learn, share, and teach each other, that cycle of learning is reinforced.
TVAUG is organized under formal bylaws, run by volunteers, and led by a 5-member Executive Board (shown below) working closely with an Advisory Board of approximately 20 members. The key to the club’s success is the member-volunteers who give their time and share their considerable talents at each meeting.
