By Shannon Abram, Relationship Manager at The Community Roundtable.
After over six years of connecting community folks online we are taking this show on the road! I am thrilled to announce our latest venture – TheCR Connect! TheCR Connect is technically a workshop for community professionals, but our goal is to have it be much more that that. By bringing together an intimate group of community practitioners we want to facilitate conversations, share knowledge, solve problems, inspire action and provide the tools participants need to go back into their communities and create real, meaningful change. Basically, TheCR Connect is what our online community – both here and in TheCR Network, would look like if we were all sitting around a big roundtable in a room together, instead of behind our computers and devices.
Our first event takes place on October 1 in our hometown – Boston, MA. You can join an intimate group of people who live and breath community for this day of inspiring speakers, actionable planning sessions, engaged networking and expert case studies – plus some fun surprises.
Participation is limited to just 50 community enthusiasts to ensure that real conversations happen, that every participant can contribute and that everyone walks away with the connections and inspiration to create real change.
If you’re not close enough to Boston to make it in for the event don’t worry – we are targeting a West Coast event in the Winter, and a Mid-West event in the Spring. Stay tuned for a full agenda in the coming weeks.
I hope we’ll see you there, and that you’ll bring your enthusiasm for community building, your passion for connecting with others and your sense of humor! To learn more visit TheCR Connect or request an invite now!
