Apple Admin Community, Slack and Meetups
The Apple Admin community is a very connected group of professionals who support one another through the MacAdmins Slack, a podcast, and local or regional Meetups. You don’t have to do this alone. There are over 14,000 of us to provide insight and support. The blend of ideas about supporting our users with Apple devices from Higher Ed, K-12, Enterprise, Healthcare, and Government will help you grow as an admin and bring new and exciting features to your users. Check out the links below to find out more. You can get direct help managing or deploying macOS or iOS devices and exchange ideas and best practices.
Over 14K members. You can get real time help, news and insights from peers around the globe. No shenanigans. This group is friendly, helpful, and very well informed. If you’re in this business and haven’t checked out Slack, you really should.

Many Apple admins groups routinely post meetup information on Jamf-Nation. Even if you aren’t a Jamf customer, Jamf-Nation is an important site to check in on regularly.
I’m personally a huge fan of this weekly podcast. The diversity and experience of featured speakers is impressive. It’s definitely a great way to stay up to date and informed on developments affecting our community.
The MacAdmins Podcast is recorded roughly twice a month and produced in partnership with MacAdmins.org, where you can join thousands of Apple Admins on a Slack team.
