Community Group Meetups
With over 700 community groups across the Trailblazer community, there is something for every kind of Salesforce professional. Attending local or virtual community meetups provides Salesforce professionals with one of the best opportunities, the chance to network.
Community meetups offer you the chance to network with those who have similar interests, operate in your region, and with a similar skillset. The groups are organised by Salesforce users. The purpose of these meetups is for individuals to share knowledge, ideas, and best practices on how to get the most out of Salesforce.
The great thing about these meetups is that you can choose the best ones to suit your current needs.
Ask or answer a question in the valuable Answers section in the trailblazer community. Being able to source support from a global community of Salesforce users is incredibly beneficial, regardless of whether you’re a novice or an expert.
98% of questions receive an answer from community members with 100% receiving an answer in less than 48 hours. Some trailblazers go above and beyond for their community, becoming significant contributors and achieving Salesforce MVP status.
