As a community built by users for users, DSLUG relies strictly on Members' volunteer efforts to help us grow and flourish. The DSLUG Volunteer Program provides an avenue for community members to get further engaged by sharing their time and talents while developing personally and professionally, making a meaningful impact, and being recognized for their valuable contributions. Help build the quality programming and experiences your User Group needs to thrive; get started as a volunteer today!

1. Enroll

Fill out your Volunteer Profile. This tells us how you'd like to volunteer your time, any specialty focus areas, and some general information about your expertise in Dynamics SL. 

Volunteers have the opportunity to help influence the DSLUG community in four ways:

  • PRESENT virtually in webinars or in person at conferences or local Chapter meetings
  • INSTRUCT an Academy course online or a Premium Session onsite at the annual conference
  • SERVE on a board or committee, help lead a Special Interest Group (SIG), join a Chapter leadership team, or assist at the annual conference
  • WRITE a tech tip or volunteer testimonial

 

2. Engage

After you complete your Volunteer Profile, we'll follow up with you to discuss your involvement and explore opportunities matching your areas of interest. You'll also receive an email invitation to join the virtual DSLUG Volunteer Community. There you'll network with other volunteers and access a variety of valuable resources to connect you with opportunities of interest and develop you in your role.

During your journey as a DSLUG volunteer, if you have any questions or we can help connect you with opportunities or resources, be sure to connect with the DSLUG team.

As a community built by users for users, we rely on the volunteer efforts of users like you to help us grow and flourish. Thank you for contributing to the DSLUG Community!


Because I have learned from previous conferences that were all put on by volunteers, it’s my obligation to pass on some of the knowledge that I have received and hopefully give another person the advantage of learning something new.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. I am a VAR/ISV Partner. Can I contribute as a volunteer?

A. VARS and ISVs are welcome to participate in the User Group as members and volunteers. Many times, partners have some of the best expertise to share. We work hard at making our activities comfortable for all members in a learning environment. Members do not want to feel uncomfortable with “sales talk” during sessions, but, they do want to work with smart people. When leading a breakout session, webinar, or other speaking engagement (excluding Partner Showcases/Sponsor Sessions and Sponsorship opportunities), you must speak as an independent subject matter expert. If a user is interested in your product or services, they are free to ask separately. In addition, distributing materials of any kind in the session is prohibited.

 

Q. Will my presentations be recorded?

A. In most cases, DSLUG will record sessions and presentations, making them available to members at a later date. In all cases, the content presented during User Group sessions becomes the intellectual property of Dynamic Communities, Inc. Volunteers must ensure that the content in their presentations/contribution:

(i) Do not infringe any third party Intellectual Property or other proprietary rights;
(ii) Are free of any confidential information;
(iii) Do not contain libelous or unlawful matter that may cause harm or injury; and
(iv) Violate any right of privacy or other right of any person.

 

Q. Do I get paid for contributing as a volunteer?

A. It should be understood that volunteerism within DSLUG is a contribution by the individual to the community and should not constitute employment and that no fees are paid for this service.
