By Shannon DiGregorio Abram, Relationship Manager at The Community Roundtable.
Yesterday we shared this picture via twitter in honor of #tbt (throwback thursday) of Rachel and Jim at our very first TheCRLive, at the Barking Crab in Boston, MA. It’s hard to believe that was five years ago. This month we’ve been looking back at those five years though interviews with veteran community practitioners (so far we’ve chatted with Heather and Nigel), a podcast series with our founders and a fun infographic of our favorite milestones.
