Salesforce MVPs are exceptional individuals helping millions of Trailblazers and customers thrive by sharing their knowledge, leadership, and creativity within the Salesforce Community. Salesforce MVPs are nominated by the community and awarded MVP status for a one-year period.
MVPs are nominated for their individual contributions, completely independent of where they work.
Below is the brief description of the nomination process
- Nominees must have been active in the community for at least a year to be considered for MVP status.
- Any Customer or Salesforce employee can make a nomination.
- After nominations close, the current MVPs review each nomination and provide unique and valuable feedback on every nomination based on their real-life experience within their online and local communities.
- A diverse team of internal stakeholders from different teams review nominations together. This global team includes Salesforce.org, Alliances and AppExchange, Developer and Admin relations so as to make sure that all communities, groups, and regions are fairly represented to discuss feedback about each nomination.
- After all of the above, a final list of new MVPs to be awarded is created.
- New MVPs are notified the night before an official announcement is made. MVP rewards last for one year from the announcement, and ongoing participation is reviewed annually based on contributions in the last 12 months.
