One of my favorite user group newsletters, SWAGGER, is published by the Southern Wisconsin Apple Group (SWAG). While some groups are located near multiple software and hardware developers, making it easy to find monthly speakers, groups in the Midwest can find it a bit more challenging to provide timely and informative topics.

The folk at SWAG do this by offering topics that meet their local member’s needs, building community and sharing information with other groups in the area. Recent topics have included iTunes, iWork, Keynote, and, believe it or not, Windows 8, presented by a member of the Madison PC Users Group.

See how they do it in Madison.
