The South Australian Apple Users Club was formed in the late 1970s by a group of young professionals, keen to support each other in their use of the Apple II computer in business, education, and home use. The Club met in retailers premises.
After the Macintosh appeared in 1984 the Club began separate meetings for Apple II and Macintosh users, but with the Apple II now virtually extinct the Club is essentially a Macintosh User Group. Over time, the demography of the Club has changed too, with many older members of the community taking up computing for the first time.
The objects of the Club are:
- To provide a non-profit organisation to promote and develop the use of Apple computers
- To co-operate with similar clubs throughout the world
- To provide a centre where members can meet to exchange ideas and discuss problems
- To disseminate information useful to Club members
To fulfil those aims, the Club holds regular meetings, and offers a number of services.
The Club maintains a Google Groups mailing list, through which the Club can make announcements and members can discuss problems. In effect, it is an online help service.
