Hello User Group Leaders!
Designating one person as the main organizer of Alteryx For Good in your User Group is a great way to kick off the selection of your AFG non-profit organization and keeping all communication organized. This person will be acting as an Alteryx For Good Ambassador. Maybe it can be 1 leader on the team or perhaps a user group member!
The AFG Ambassador will be the main point of contact between the user group’s members and the non-profit organization (NPO). Their responsibilities include:
Collaborating with the user group members to select a NPO and volunteer
Posting the name of the NPO your group will be supporting on the UG Leader Board on the Alteryx Community
Obtaining a main contact at the NPO for volunteering activities
If it is a new NPO chosen by the UG, use the template to start the conversation.
If it is an AFG NPO that already has an Alteryx license, request the introduction from email@example.com. Our team will get you connected.
Managing the event logistics:
Organize an on-site volunteer event during Alteryx for Good Volunteer Week April 23-29.
Communicate with UG members on the volunteer event info.
Collect the number of volunteers participating, shift time, responsibilities.
All UG Volunteers receive an AFG t-shirt! Create the user group’s AFG t-shirt list by gathering quantity and sizes and following up with the AFG Committee to request the AFG t-shirts for distribution.
Assign an event photographer to capture the team’s volunteering efforts and help us tell the stories
Send your event photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Briefly describe to us what the photo is telling: Who, what, where, when- what’s happening?
Have your group follow us on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Help support our AFG Awareness social media campaign by clicking “Like” or “Share” the AFG photos to your network
