With the meeting theme and speakers decided, it’s time to schedule your meeting! You can create a user group meeting even on EventBrite.com, along with tracking attendance. Eventbrite allows you to share the meeting on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. Meetup can also help with scheduling a meeting and tracking who will and won’t attend. In addition, it provides you with a group mailing list and a place to store shared files (such as presentations).   Email Announcement to current User Group Members Alteryx owns the official User Group Roster because of confidentiality agreements. However, Alteryx wants to help promote your group! Once you have your event scheduled we’ll add your User Group meeting to Events @ Alteryx.

Now’s the time when you meet with the other Alteryx enthusiasts who have signed up. Relax, introduce yourselves, and get to know each other. Find out what people want from an Alteryx User Group in your area. The goal of this meeting is simple: meet other Alteryx enthusiasts in your area, and decide when and where to hold your User Group meeting.   Day & Time We normally see User Group Meetings held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays in the afternoon or evening. Pick a day and time that works best with your User Group Members. Most User Group meetings run for about 2 hours and host quarterly meetings throughout the year.   Help us, help you: At the beginning of the year, please contact the Customer Experience Team on selecting meeting dates for the year.   Use the Alteryx User Group Leaders Meeting Request Form to easily schedule your meeting!    Format How would you like your meeting structured? Formal or informal? It’s up to you! Our current User Group Leaders specifically tailor to what their members enjoy the most. An easy way to gage this is through surveys sent out after meetings. See section on Feedback Surveys.   Some of the most common meeting formats feature a panel discussion, one long in-depth talk or a couple of shorter talks, then an open-mic “quick-fire” talk.   User Group Example:  Some User Groups are currently exploring a “two-track” plan. There will be a beginner track and an intermediate/advanced track with appropriate discussions for each. Another great way to have a very engaging meeting is by having no set topics! Open the floor up to discussion with your members. It is certainly a very laid back and easy approach to get great conversation flowing.   When using Speakers/Presenters for your User Group meeting remember: To think of someone from the group who would be the best choice for your meeting, there might be a member knowledgeable on a User Group topic of interest. Alteryx Product Management and Solutions Engineers are available to discuss capabilities and overview of the product roadmap. Carefully evaluate presentations ahead of time Talk to your presenters ahead of time and ask them what they will be talking about Tip: Most presenters go for about 40-50 minutes Collect presentation decks ahead of time Arrive early to check A/V equipment Always have a ready-to-go presentation or back up plan in case life gets the better of you! Location Location can be key to get members to your meetings. Make sure the venue is central and convenient to your User Group Members. We commonly see most User Group meetings held at a bar, restaurant, or company.   Tip: Hosting a User Group meeting at an office will benefit a business – it helps create exposure to new parties and visibility in the community. It also is extremely helpful to have parking and directions listed on your event invite. Parking is often a piece of information that gets missed out on in the planning phase.
