About Us

The Portland Power BI User Group is a community of people excited about the business analytics tool, Power BI. We believe the platform offers rich possibilities, and we keep pace by sharing our learning and doing deep-dive explorations of topics. We run the gamut from new to experienced users and welcome anyone who shares an interest in data analytics.

Some great perks to joining our monthly meetups are networking, knowledge transfer, and community building. We aim to foster a vibrant community that shares success in implementing best practices for Power BI. Complimentary pizza, beer, and refreshments are served at every meetup.


The community was established in March 2015 by CSG Pro, a local business intelligence & analytics consulting firm. CSG Pro builds relationships with organizations to deliver data-driven business transformation via custom software development, data warehousing, and analytics solutions.
