Hi all! We wanted to start a Maximize [CITY] User Group thread and start connecting all those registered! As we prepare for the event, we want to add some questions and discussion topics that relate to the customer lifecycle workshop that we're having during the user group, as well as other #Maximize18 content. I'll mention them here when they go live!


This thread is also a great place to ask any questions of the group and share what you hope to get out of the event!

What do you hope to gain out of the user group? Is there anyone you want to meet? Where were you be traveling in from? What are you excited for in spring?

MY RESPONSE: I personally can't wait to meet you all. I read about your service stories and see all your interactions on the community, so it'll be great to put faces to names! (XYZ)

Pleas reply or follow this thread to find out what's new with the upcoming user group
