Why JUG-AFRICA ?

Why JUG-AFRICA ? :
================

The idea behind JUG-AFRICA is to allow JUGs located within Africa to collaborate globally in ways that will ultimately benefit Java developer
communities locally.
JUG-AFRICA is intended to promote communication between JUGs across
continent.

Individual JUGs will continue to function normally. Affiliation does not in any way involve subordination of local JUGs under JUG-AFRICA. JUG-AFRICA exists solely to serve and support the Affiliated JUGs.

Some benefits to think about :
=======================

* Help new JUGs to grow and introducing JUG Leaders to JUG-Leaders mailing list.
* Organizing regional events throughout the continent
* Searching for sponsors and speakers
* Negotiating bulk discounts (for events, books, courses, certifications etc.) which can be made available to all Affiliates.
