Welcome to the Alteryx User Group Community! Thank you for your interest and dedication to lead members of your community closer to analytic freedom. Here are some quick tips and best practices to help support your new group.
Starting a new User Group
Interested in a User Group that is not located in your area? No problem! If you are interested in starting a User Group, contact the Alteryx User Group Team: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Alteryx User Group Team will then help you find other strong users in your community to join the User Group Leadership Committee. Typically we see User Groups run by a Committee of 2 to 4 User Group Leaders. In the beginning, our goal is to have you and your team collaborate.
User Group Example: The DC User Group has 4 leaders and they are each going to be assigned the job of organizing one of the quarterly meetings.
What are some benefits of becoming a leader?
Build your personal brand
Network with other Alteryx users

Amplify your advocacy
Create a community of Alteryx users
Listen to some of our leaders
Your Role – User Group Leader
That’s you! The role of the User Group Leader is simple, you are here to energize, inspire, empower and lead your community. The User Group Leadership Committee, is in charge of coordinating quarterly meetings in their community. The User Group Leadership Committee, is supported by the Alteryx User Group Team.
Check List for starting a new User Group:
☐ Create an Alteryx User Group on Community
We created the User Group pages on Alteryx Community with the User Groups in mind. Alteryx has listened to User Group Leaders from around the world and wanted to create a centralized location for all your needs. To create a new User Group on Community, contact the Alteryx User Group Team: email@example.com. They are here to onboard you!
☐ Pick a date for an informal get-together.
Your meeting is easy to organize: make it an informal get-together, rather than a formal meeting with a pre-arranged agenda or speakers. You might want to arrange to meet at a bar, a coffee shop, the library, or similar public venue. Do you have a local college or university with an MBA program, Stats or Business Economics department? They may be able to provide a meeting area.
You can also meet virtually of course!
☐ Get people to your get-together
Promote your new group! An easy way is through word-of-mouth to other Alteryx users you know locally. Social networking sites like Community, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter can also help.
Once you run two successful User Group Meetings, the Alteryx User Group Team will get back to you to promote you as an official User Group Leader and you will get your dedicated User Group page in Community where you can easily discuss and engage with your members and create events!
We also provide you with a User Group Leader private forum and a private Knowledge Base with all the useful resources to continue your User Group journey!
