About Us

The Association of Personal Computer User Groups (APCUG) is a worldwide organization that helps groups devoted to the world of technology including computers, tablets, smartphones, digital photography, genealogy, etc. by facilitating communications between member groups and industry vendors.

A 501(c)3 non-profit corporation as designated by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, APCUG also assists member groups and their officers fulfill their education goals with support materials and shared knowledge and experience.

APCUG is a cross-platform organization. While many groups are oriented towards the Microsoft Windows operating system, numerous groups include members using a variety of operating systems such as OS X, iOS, Linux, Chrome, and Android. APCUG provides services to meet all of their needs. Membership is open to all technology user groups.

APCUG itself is not a user group; only user groups themselves are members. APCUG’s product and service are offered to group leaders, who can then share them with their members.

APCUG is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to fostering communication among and between user groups and between user groups and vendors.

​​APCUG is not a part of, nor a representative of any manufacturer, product, reseller, dealer, consultant, or business.
