Spring has sprung for many of our team and our community (sorry midwest & rockies – I’m sure it is on it’s way) and with spring we’re feeling a little restless. If you are too, here are some events coming up that we think are pretty interesting. Some are virtual, some we will be at in person, some we wish we could be at:
We are following the #ccdk hash tag on twitter for all the great nuggets coming out of The Community Conference over in Copenhagen. Rachel will be giving the closing keynote and is really excited to be there to meet up with many or our TheCR Network European members.
May 10 – TheCR Live – Raleigh-Durham area
We are very excited to launch TheCR Live in a new place – the research triangle, raleigh-durham area! TheCR Live provides an opportunity for social and community pros to meet each other, discuss challenges and solutions or just get to know each other better (and have a meal and perhaps a beer!) James LaCourte is the host down there, if you are in the area, please stop by.
May 14 – Digital Workplace 24 – Virtual
Rachel will be discussing how to truly engage executives with social business initiatives and sharing some of the findings from our The Social Executive research during this online event aimed at people who manage companies’ intranets and the broader array of enterprise applications that make up digital workplaces.
As I am time zone challenged and can’t really do the math on GMT to Eastern, I have confirmed Rachel will be on at 9am Eastern.
May 17 –TheCR Live – Boston area
This TheCRLive has been going strong since June of 2009. And as spring has sprung we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with some seafood and beer at Summer Shack in Cambridge! We hope to see you there!
May 21 – Online Community Unconference – Mountain View
We are happy to see this conference back! It was started by some of the smarties from TheCR Network and their California peers, many of our members have attended in the past and found it worthy and we are sure it will be a great one to be part of again this year. We’re looking forward to hearing more about it and all the great information that comes out of it!
And for all of you TheCR Network members out there. Don’t forget to check this month’s roundtable call program schedule. Some great upcoming topics include:
May 9 – Digital Marketing Analytics with Chuck Hemann
May 16 – Internal Community Adoption & Engagement Case Study presented by member company Marsh
May 28 – Developing a Community Advocacy Program
and of course every Thursday – Happy Hour – where you can live chat more informally with fellow network members and TheCR team.
