The Bowling Green Area Microcomputer User Group is a dedicated gathering of local computer users who enjoy learning about their systems and teaching others about these wonderful tools that can transform our lives.
The club is a non-profit corporation that exists to serve the communities of South Central Kentucky providing a supportive atmosphere for learning about computers.
BGAMUG is about 20 years old, having been formed in late 1987 after the effective demise of the local Commodore Users Group. For a good part of the early history, we were known as the Bowling Green Area MS-DOS Users Group, but as the PC revolution brought us first 16-bit, then 32-bit Windows operating systems, we felt it was time to broaden the horizons a bit, and in 1995 our name was officially changed to: The Bowling Green Area Microcomputer User Group.
Our Governing Body
Our leadership gathers its momentum from our Constitution and Bylaws that provide for the governing of our User Group. BGAMUG’s By-Laws have undergone many a change over the years, driven by the need for flexibility and simplicity.
Our club is governed by an Executive Committee, as stipulated in our constitution. This board meets monthly, usually on the first Tuesday of each month.
BGAMUG is an active member of APCUG , the Association of Personal Computer User Groups, which is our partner in Community Awareness and Education
