A support group for people that run LUGs and UGs

Do you run a user group for sysadmins, Linux users, or whatever?

Do you have a problem finding speakers?

Do you have a particular attendee that is troublesome and you aren't sure what to do?

Are you new to all this and want advice?

Well, I can't help you.

However, there is a new mailing list for people that run user groups. UG-Leaders was recently created by William Bilancio who happens to run the UG that I most often attend: LOPSA-NJ

The mailing list's description is simple:

This mailing list is for people that run technical user groups (LUGs,sysadmin user groups, SAGE or LOPSA chapters, and so on). The purpose of this mailing list is to encourage information shareing on topics such as:

How to promote your group, how to find speakers, how to get started, tips on how to run a meeting, volunteer retention, and anything else related to the running of such groups. The only forbidden topic is who's computer/editor/OS/language/whatever is better/worse that mine/yours.

Thanks for creating this group, William! It sounds great!
