Meetings for the Michigan!/usr/group are free to attend, and we encourage everyone to attend our meetings. However, our group has expenses, and we encourage folks who participate in the Michigan!/usr/group to become members to help us defray these expenses.

Membership also provides the following benefits:

  • Voting rights for board elections
  • Nomination rights for the board (you can nominate yourself or someone else to be on the Michigan!/usr/group board)
  • A warm sense of belonging and supporting a great organization of like-minded UNIX and Linux professionals and enthusiasts.

We now offer online membership payment and renewal options. Learn more via our online membership system.

You may also mail a check, or use our Paypal Account address (

Membership for individuals is $50 for 12 months.

We also have student memberships at a reduced rate, and corporate memberships (for multiple employees) available for $200. Please contact us for more information about these memberships at

We’re pleased to offer non-voting, online-only, memberships for those who aren’t in the area or are unable to regularly attend meetings. These are a great way to support MUG for those who follow us via our online streams or posted videos.
