CMUG Benefits of Memebership

First, the meat (or tofu) and potatoes...

Personal help with all your Mac questions

We feature a CMUG Help List (interactive e-mail listserv to which you may subscribe) to tap into the knowledge and experience of our membership. Plus, Mouse Droppings, our monthly news magazine contains articles with helpful information and tips. At our monthly meetings, we prime each meeting with an open half-hour Questions & Answers session at 7:00 p.m.

Monthly Meetings

Monthly meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month in Ronnenkamp Hall of the Grace Lutheran Church in Corvallis, Oregon. Meet a lot of new, friendly faces, or visit with old friends... there's nothing like the personal touch (even in our hi-tech world).

Monthly News Magazine

One of the most well-known MUG newsletters in the Mac world, Mouse Droppings contains 24 pages of hints, tips, software reviews, CMUG and insider news. " of the top 4 in the country," said MacUser Magazine. We have out-of-state members who join just to get Mouse Droppings.

Special prices on hardware, commercial software

Specials available only to User Group members and other special deals for CMUG members, when available, are listed in Mouse Droppings. Plus, CMUG members receive a discount at Simply Mac when showing their membership card. (3% on Macs and iPads, and 10% on accessories)

Raffles, auctions, swap events

At meetings we often hold raffles for collective items (software and hardware) CMUG has acquired or that a presenter has donated. CMUG also regularly offers monster raffles that usually includes a new system (i.e., a MacBook, iPod, iPhone...)!


FREE Workshops on various topics are held periodically at meetings. CMUG also occasionally offers inexpensive workshops with qualified instructors that are always priced far below the cost for similar instruction elsewhere.
