As members participate in community events or share content, the CTA is to track all participation in the CTA Podio app throughout the year. The member’s contribution will be considered at the end of the year renewal process.

Communication

Instant messages to program manager and members can be achieved through our private CTA slack channel. Messages for product managers can also be sent via the slack channel in the product specific channel. Calendar created events will be sent to primary email address registered for the CTA member. A listserv will be created for CTA members to use for email communications.

Confidentiality

Citrix and each Technology Advocate will have in place a mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) concerning any information discussed in private webinars or product discussions. In addition to protecting confidential Citrix information, this NDA will also ensure that members can openly discuss their operations, configurations and strategies amongst each other.
