What’s an Apple Ambassador?
It’s a role assigned to one individual from each user group in the Apple database. This person is considered Apple’s primary contact for that group.
How do I become my group’s Apple Ambassador?
You must be assigned this role in the Apple user group database by the leaders of your user group. Contact them if you are interested.
I’m a group leader and have no idea who our ambassador is. How do I find out?
You need to access your database record and look at your group’s contact list to see who has been assigned the Apple Ambassador role. If you cannot access your group’s record from the Signup/Request page, submit a support ticket for assistance.
Can user group members use Apple Sales Web?
Apple Sales Web access is only for each registered group’s Apple Ambassador.

Do you support user groups outside the United States?
Yes, some user group programs are available worldwide:
- Apple User Group Bulletin
- Apple User Group Discussion List
- Apple Sales Web

Others are available only in the U.S. and Canada. Some things we can’t do worldwide for red-tape, legal reasons, and sometimes we just don’t have the bandwidth.
