By Shannon Abram, Relationship Manager at The Community Roundtable.
Happy Friday! It’s shaping up to be a beautiful Fall weekend here in New England. We’d still buzzing about our latest announcement – the introduction of the TheCR Champion program inside TheCR Network (check out this summary from our community manager, Hillary Boucher for all the details).
Fall 2014 is really shaping up to be an exciting time here at TheCR – and it’s not over yet – we are still sorting through the data from the Community Manager Salary Survey and can’t wait to share the results with you!
What are you looking forward to this long weekend (if you’re in the US)? I might get out and do some apple picking (and apple cider donut eating!) Have a wonderful long weekend and we’ll see you back here on Tuesday.

Reframing Volunteering In Online Communities – Tell someone you volunteer your time to help your community. The response is positive. If you add the word ‘online’ to that sentence, the context changes.It feels less meaningful, less valuable, a poorer contribution to society.That’s the problem with online volunteering, it’s hard to visualise what this means.
