Your local User Group may have a desktop publishing SIG (Special Interest Group). To locate a local Mac or PC User Group, point your browser to this web page.

Advertising Federation and Art Directors Clubs are in many large metro areas (I don't have contact info on them). Contact a local well-known advertising agency to find out what is available in your area.

(To the reader of this list...)
What city are you in? Or are you within easy commuting distance of a large metro area? Maybe your city has their own groups, call the Chamber of Commerce or local newspaper for computer groups, trade organizations and clubs. Look in the local 'zines' like a Business Journal, ComputorEdge, or ComputerUser for publishing group listings.

For example, in Denver, there are two additional publishing groups. We drive a minimum of 65 miles one way to 4 different groups throughout the month! Kass is a founder and (twice) past chairman of Denver's Design to Print (design, prepress & print publishing) group. For more info about Design to Print (Denver or Colorado Springs) send an email to piams@piams.org.

If you have updated or additional information to add to this list, please e-mail it to us . We would like to have an e-mail contact (and web link) for each organization where possible. Thanks.
