Start a Local VMUG

Thank you for your interest in starting a new local VMUG!

Falling under the VMUG global organization, the local VMUGs are regional communities of VMware users that hold regular meetings to share best practices, network, and learn from each other.

Basic requirements for Affiliated VMware User Groups are:

  • Host three or more local meetings and events per year
  • Maintain an engaged Leadership Team of two or more VMUG Leaders
  • Maintain a working relationship with local group’s dedicated VMware Resourcee

If you are interested in volunteering to start and lead a new local VMUG group, please first read through the Local VMUG Leader and Program Guidelines. These guidelines will provide a further understanding of the roles and responsibilities required of a VMUG Leader, as well as the resources available. As a VMUG Leader, you are responsible for the coordination and planning of all local meetings – the most essential part of a local VMUG group! After reading through this document and you are still interested in starting a new local VMUG chapter in your area, please complete the form below.
