This coming Wednesday December 12, I’ll be hosting the first Community Hacks Meetup event in Mountain View, CA.
I decided to start this event as I was keen to share and learn more about engaging, nuturing and growing communities. I wasn’t only interested in the social media part, that was however, mostly what I could find when it came to local community meetup events. I also wanted to discuss, and spread the ideas of deeper community participation, and ownership.
The group is for anyone in large organizations, non-profits and start-ups who currently leads, organizes, manages and engages online communities. It’s a place to exchange best practices, share challenges and solutions, and to ignite ideas!
For this December 12th event, I’m delighted to share that we have two excellent guest speakers:
Emily Goligoski, Design and Community Lead for the Mozilla Open Badges Project: 'Rewarding and Motivating Your Community'
Robyn Tippens, Community Expert, Co-Founder of Mariposa Interactive and Author of Community 101: How to Grow an Online Community: ‘Best Tips for Managing Community on the Edges. When Things Don’t Go as Planned.’
If you are a community manger or leader, or want to be - you know that the success of your great idea and awesome product rests with a strong and passionate community. Community Hacks is a great place for learning, discussion and making great connections.
If you aren’t able to attend in person, I’ll be sure to give you a run down of the event later this week.
