How to Start an Altium User Group

Creating a local user group is a great way to meet local talent, find resources and share your experience.


The Basic Steps: (in logical order)


Identify Altium users in your area. Invite them to collaborate with you to create a local user group. 

You can post an invitation on the Altium Community Forum to let users know you are interested in starting a group.

Identify a hosting facility, this could be a local PCB design service, an assembly house, a PCB fabricator or your company's conference room.

Ask Altium if they have a Field Application Engineer in your area that can participate in the meetings to present new features and be available for Q&A sessions.

Create a group charter, you are welcome to copy the SDAUG Group Charter or use any part of it as a starting point for creating your group's charter.

Create a blog, I chose Blogger.com - It's easy and free.


Announce your first meeting, nominate and elect group officers.

Encourage all group members to participate and share their experience in the meetings.


best regards,
