By Shannon DiGregorio Abram, Relationship Manager at The Community Roundtable.
Hard to believe that the first quarter of 2014 is almost over. We’ve done some exciting stuff in this space so far this year – launched a new community manager profile series, started a new webinar series spotlighting the cool work our community manager members are doing and taken on three community themes – building, connecting and innovating.
Next month we’re switching gears and offering a retrospective of the last five years in the community management. We have some fun content planned – podcasts with early experts in the field, interviews with early community practitioners and more – all leading up to the release of our fifth State of Community Management report. I can’t wait to share it all with you – but first, the links:
