There are a number of reasons we started The Community Roundtable, but chief among them is that we care about helping people. That sentiment is directed toward our customers, but it is also directed to others – potential employees, vendors, partners and people we don’t even know. We have some unique experience and expertise in social software, social media, community management, organizational theory, and strategy. We’d like to share what we’ve learned.
That’s from The Community Roundtable’s mission statement. As a friend and employee I can confirm that Jim Storer and Rachel Happe not only mean it, but they follow through on it as well. Today we are pleased to be able to give out 3 scholarships to our community manager online training program which starts next week.
Congratulations to Katie Felten, Candis Robinson and Peter Staal. We look forward to having them learn from this training course as well as share their experiences with our audience. Each will be doing a guest blog post here to talk about training, why it is important to them, and what their experience with taking this course is like.
Thank you to all who applied. It was not an easy decision with so many worthy applicants. And please continue to follow this blog and our twitter feed as we continue with our mission and with advancing the business of community, there is a good chance we’ll have more opportunities like this in the future.
Also, if you’re interested in learning more about our training program watch Jim Storer be interviewed by Tim MacDonald of My Community Manager tomorrow on his weekly community manager Google+ hangout.
