There is an old folk tale that says “It takes a village to raise a child,” this statement also holds true for any successful organization, “It takes a successful community to support a leading organization.” The Citrix User Group Community has been an avenue for like minded individuals to collaborate, share business experiences, and provide insights with Citrix applications. The community has continued to champion Citrix products and showcases its abilities. Whether it has been a webinar, local group meeting, a blog, or a tweet, the evangelism is invaluable and we appreciate it all. As we announced prior to Synergy 2017, we have created an expanded recognition program for our community champions and, today, I am happy to announce the 2017 Citrix Technology Advocates class members.

These members have demonstrated the technical knowledge, community passion, and thought leadership that Citrix would like to recognize. Membership in the Citrix Technology Advocate program is the first step in recognizing our community leaders, and I am looking forward to the continual promotion of their work and providing them with additional incentives. Congratulations to all the new members of the Citrix Technology Advocate Program!
Finally, I would also like to thank all the CTP members who were a part of the pilot program for the CTA program and who will also continue to provide their support.
