We are very happy that you want to start a new user group in your area. Tell us a little bit about yourself, where you want to start a user group and why so we can better help you get started. Applications will be considered by National Instruments and approved user groups will be added to the LabVIEW User Group directory and direct contact/support by National Instruments. Please allow some time to consider your application because it can take some time to go through all the requests. Thank you and thanks again for your interest!
