Leader guidelines
Learn how we ensure Atlassian user groups and Trello events are a success.
Leaders must be users
Atlassian employees, Solution Partners, and organizations with contractual relationships with Atlassian are not allowed to lead user groups, but they are welcome to attend, sponsor or speak on relevant best practices at User Group events.
Events managed on aug.atlassian.com
Third-party sites can be used for supplemental marketing efforts, but not event registration. Meeting details and RSVPs must be done via aug.atlassian.com so we can track attendance and reimburse accordingly.
No sales pitches
The main goal of Atlassian User Groups are for users to get together and learn from one another. Partners or Marketplace vendors are welcome to speak on relevant best practices but sales pitches are not permitted. User group leaders should review presentations before events.
Not for profit
There is no charge for attendees and organizers cannot profit off attendance.
Groups must stay active
In order to get the true benefits of a community, we encourage user groups to meet monthly, but at a minimum, User Groups need to meet four times per year. If your group hasn't met in more than 90 days, you are no longer considered an active User Group Leader and you won't receive all the Leader benefits.
Co-leaders are encouraged
We encourage Leaders to collaborate and divide up responsibilities. If you meet someone who is interested, let us know and we'll set them up as a co-leader. If you're interested in finding a co-leader contact your Community Manager who can help you find the right person. If you'd like to become a User Group Leader, learn more on the Leadership page.
Exclusive community resources
Content in Confluence
Leaders have access to presentations, videos, sample agendas and best practices from Atlassian and other user group leaders. You'll find everything you need to put on a first-class event.
Requests via Jira Service Desk
Use Jira Service Desk to request resources for events, from swag to reimbursements and everything in between.
