Who we are:

SMOG is an official Mac User Group dedicated to helping Mac users, IOS users and Apple TV users in Southern California.

When and where we meet:

SMOG meetings take place on the second Saturday morning of every month, with the meetings lasting from 9 A.M. until noon.

Our next three meeting dates are June 11, July 9 and August 13. Click on the Calendar link above for more information on the next meeting or click here for a map of our meeting location.

About our meetings:

Our meetings begin with an hour-long, open-to-all Question & Answer session, demonstrations of software, hardware, and better ways to use your Mac. In addition, you’ll meet friendly people who love to use their Macs and are eager to exchange ideas and knowledge with you.

Note: We accept e-mailed questions from visitors as well as members, but can only answer these questions at our meetings. We are a volunteer group and cannot e-mail answers to technology-related questions.

Who can attend our meetings:

Only active members, first-time visitors, and helper animals may attend our meetings. Lapsed members are welcome to rejoin at any time. We also welcome workplace Windows users who want to learn how to use a Mac or other Apple products.

We come highly recommended!

A few years ago famous techie radio talk-show host Leo Laporte cited SMOG as a particularly good user group for Mac users.  We’re also a good Mac user group for those who use Windows at work, but want to learn more about Apple products.
