User Group Awards & Community Summit Europe

By Amy McKinnon posted Jul 22, 2020 08:37 AM


Community Summit Europe 2020 was one for the books – thought-provoking, innovative, and for the first time…100% virtual. The circumstances of COVID-19 posed new challenges and prompted necessary new approaches to how we gather and learn. Pre-COVID-19, the Community Summit experience could be described as nothing short of memorable, inspiring and connected – a powerful energy felt by all when the community came together, and all the interactions we took for granted that accompanied these great gatherings. This included recognition and celebration of our outstanding volunteers, special moments typically reserved for these marquee events. While we couldn’t convene in person this year, there was still so much worth celebrating! But first, we remember a few of the event highlights.
While it was not the norm, the event delivered high impact experiences for attendees.

Hack4Good Hackathon

Without further delay, Dynamic Communities’ Local User Group Team is pleased to recognize Power Platform User Group members who are going above and beyond for their local and global Power Platform User Group communities. The UG Community awards go to…


Regional User Group Spotlight Award

This award recognizes local Power Platform User Groups in the EMEA region that demonstrate the value of community, utilize User Group best practices, and actively engage a growing membership. 

Lithuania Power Platform User Group - Leaders: Vasarė Daugėlaitė & Adas Keserauskas


Galway Power BI User Group - Leaders: Martin Loughman & Anne Walsh
User Group Leader Excellence Award – EMEA

These Leaders are recognized as going above and beyond for their Power Platform User Group and inspiring their local members to engage and learn. The leaders were nominated by local community members.

Global Power Platform User Group All-Star Award

All-Stars are Individuals recognized for global impact on the Power Platform User Group demonstrating leadership, passion, resolve, advancement, commitment, and participation. The All-Star Award program recognizes User Group members who have a passion for Microsoft Power Platform and have made significant contributions of their time and expertise to educate and connect the greater User Group community. Once earned, the All-Star Award holds a lifetime designation – it’s not a one-year award!


While we were not able to announce our award winners in-person, onstage in Barcelona as originally planned, these amazing volunteers and this community of users from around the world have not stopped. When the time comes and we can gather once again the global community will not only be stronger, it will be bonded by the challenges we’ve overcome. Until then we continue to connect virtually – whether for #CommunitySummit, #LocalUG meetings, trainings or virtual happy hours – to support one another at all times, sharing knowledge and experiences with one another.

THANK YOU to all our winners for all you have done and continue to do to engage this vibrant community even amidst these unprecedented times. #LeaderLove

Note: Awards are based on 2019 volunteer engagement.
