General Information

Our current leader is: Bob Shindel ( )

  • Our group started in 1986. We were originally known as Desktop Connections - an Apple User group exclusive to Monmouth County.
  • A few years later we joined with folks from Toms River and Brick and became MOPMUG (Monmouth/Ocean County Professional Mac User Group).
  • Around 1998 we changed our name to MacWaves to better reflect the diversity of our group.
  • Around late 1999, we merged with Brookdale Computer Users Group (BCUG).
