Do you love all things Alteryx? Do you dream in workflows? Do you enjoy the thrill of solving? Do you want to share your knowledge and learn something new from others? Have you at least once called yourself an Alteryx Addict? Becoming a leader of your local Alteryx Community is for you!
Alteryx User Groups are independent volunteer organizations created for users, run by users, and Alteryx support. Here you have an opportunity to meet locally or virtually to bring together a broad range of backgrounds where users of all skill levels are sharing ideas, experiences, and best practices.
We have put together guidelines to prepare you for User Group domination.

User Group Expectations
All are welcome!
Alteryx User Group meetings are inclusive and open to anyone interested in Alteryx. User Group meetings have free admission. User Groups are a community effort.
User Groups are about the Community. The User Group Leaders provide guidance and structure for the local Community. The User Group Team supports the User Group Leaders and provides guidance on how to run a User Group. We do not dictate what User Groups should do.
User Group meetings are created and promoted through the Alteryx Community Events
User Group meetings must be created and promoted through Community Events. The User Group Leaders are expected to maintain the Alteryx Community User Group page and are encouraged to be socially active.
User Group meetings are a customer event that provides peer-to-peer support. Selling at these events is not supported. If you see specific cases of selling at events, please flag the attention of the User Groups Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us know.
The User Group Program holds its leaders to the highest standards. Leaders are representatives of Alteryx to their local community. There is a zero-tolerance rule. If you see specific cases of abuse, rudeness, or other violations, please flag the attention to the User Groups Team. The User Groups Team can handle these situations.
User Groups who have not hosted a meeting in 2 quarters will be considered inactive and can be removed from the User Group pages on the Community. User Groups leaders will receive a warning 30 days before the group will be shut down. Groups can be reinstated by 3-5 co-leaders who are willing to revive and lead the User Group.
Relationship with The Alteryx User Group Team
Alteryx User Group Leaders and User Groups Team have a mutual partnership with the goal of coordinating and hosting meetings. The User Groups Team will support Alteryx User Group Leaders' needs and help prepare them for success.
