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