What we're about

The Northern New England Drone User Group (NNEDUG) is an organization for amateur and professional drone users that seeks to promote the responsible use of drones for community service, artistic, entrepreneurial, and recreational purposes. All experience levels are welcome.

We get together as a community to share tips, experiences, and of course to do some flying. Learn how to build and use drones in a safe and respectful manner. We regularly hold events to educate the public about the positive role drones can play in our society. Most importantly, we think that drones are a lot of fun!

NNEDUG is a member of the Drone User Group Network (http://droneusergroup.net/), an association of community organizations that promote the use of civilian drone technology for the benefit of humanity.

About RSVPs:

When you RSVP "Yes" to an event please follow through with your commitment to attend. If you can't make it, please change your RSVP to "No" at least 48 hours prior to the event. "No Shows" hurt the trustworthiness of the group and can disrupt our plans. If it's a limited attendance event, it could also prevent other Members that can attend from RSVPing "Yes" or not correctly move members on the waitlist to attending! We understand if emergencies and last minute situations happen, but please be diligent of your RSVP status. Thank you!
