This week, we are looking at the web site of The Villages Apple User Group of The Villages, Florida.
The landing page is like this:
The large picture in the center of the landing page rotates between 4 pictures. The first is “An Important Announcement” saying that as of September 1st,the membership will only include residents of The Villages. The second is about the Apple iClub which appears to be their iOS SIG. The third is the announcement for their September 12th meeting which is about “A preview of macOS and device convergence“. The last is about their Help Session for members who need help. Of course, each picture links to more details.
The menu bar near the top of the pages is links for Home, TVAUG, General Info, Post Categories, iOS Devices, TVAUG Calendar, Looing for Help?, and Posts.
I’m not sure if this is a collection of different groups or sub groups. Since these seem to have their own sites. In the lower left corner that isn’t shown in the shot above, there are links for Club Websites in the Villages: tvaug.org gets you:
This pages boasts of having 1300 members.
The appleiclub.com link takes you back to the original page. Many of the other links here are for iPhone and iPad members.
The TVAUG.net link goes to this:
This is a member only site.
Another link takes us to the Apple and Mac Users DropIn page. This is actually for two different help SIGs. It looks like this currently:
Note the promo for free access to Lynda.com via the public library. You should check and see if your library does this. I know the one I use does.
This group certainly reminds me of the MUGs of old. Maybe they can give us pointers on serving our members.
