The TeX Users Group (TUG) is a membership-based not-for-profit organization, founded in 1980, for anyone who uses the TeX typesetting system created by Donald Knuth and/or is interested in typography and font design.
Join or renew with TUG (trial memberships available for new members) to support use and development of TeX and friends. All TUG memberships are for the calendar year, and include all benefits for the year no matter when you join.

If you're looking for help, you can get community support via: a q&a site (tex.stackexchange.com), forum (latex.org), reddit, public mailing list (texhax), and in other ways.
