ABOUT THECR NETWORK
Working in a community at a large organization means you need to know how to make your community thrive, and know what others are doing in their community programs.
You don't need to re-invent the wheel. We've worked with thousands of community managers over the last decade, and we know how to build, manage, and staff effective communities.
Getting my team involved with TheCR Network has provided incredible ROI, giving them access to research, content, and information they can’t find anywhere else.

HOW IT WORKS
TheCR Network has been a great community learning journey for me and I'm already sharing the info with peers.

Our dedicated community concierge team connects our members to the information, ideas, and people that will help them solve their community challenges. Programming includes weekly live calls, on-demand and cohort-based learning, discussion groups, and more.
Members help each other solve hard community problems ranging from vendor management, executive engagement, metrics and reporting, and more.
Our programming is simply better than all the alternatives.
Our members are experienced professionals from global organizations. You'll interact with, and learn from people running programs just like yours. You don't need to explain what you do, or the results you need.
Our programming is focused wholly on building effective online community programs. TheCR Network is facilitated by community experts who understand your sense of urgency and the critical nature of your work.
For over a decade, we have provided global community professionals with the resources they need to succeed.
Being engaged in the Network allows us to learn from other practitioners, taking the strategy to the real-life day to day work. The professionals in the Network share their knowledge and experience so generously that it keeps us from reinventing the wheel over and over.

WHO CAN JOIN
This is a community for people like you.
Every single member and company inside TheCR Network is screened. No exceptions. The Network is full of people doing jobs like yours, working at companies like yours. There are no sales pitches from vendors, and the Network is a safe, confidential place to ask tough questions.
Our members are enthusiastic and engaged, and we are often told by new members that they have finally found "their people".
EFFICIENT + EFFECTIVE
You don't have time to waste.
Members say they see the ROI of the Network in less than 60 days. You'll have exclusive access to our entire content library, including training, hundreds of case studies, tactical resource bundles, and more.
Our community concierge team helps you find the information you need, and connects you to the programs and people that will make a difference in your community.
The Network helped me build a vocabulary to communicate about communities to other people, and to recognize and articulate patterns of behavior (good and bad) that I see happening around me in communities.
Alex Blanton, Microsoft
A community for community people by community people.
It's meta, we know. But it's also incredibly effective. We are community people. We've worked with thousands of community people over the last 13 years, and our Network is comprised entirely of community people.
We understand your job, your challenges, and how you can succeed. Our team:
- Facilitates high-value programming like calls, chats, and conversations.
- Introduces you to members.
- Saves your time by connecting you with relevant resources.
- Enables confidentiality and ensures there is no selling or conflicts of interest
- Creates a safe and supportive place for everyone to learn and grow.
WHAT YOU GET
All of the information you want, when you need it.
No two members use TheCR Network the same way - and that's by design. We know everyone has different schedules and different learning styles, so we provide synchronous and asynchronous content, including:
- Weekly roundtable calls facilitated by guest experts
- Content updates via email
- Discussion groups focused on relevant topics like vendors, metrics, L&D, and more
- Archives and/or recordings of past roundtable calls
- Searchable library of all previous discussions and calls
- Concierge service for introductions to other members
- Live and on-demand training courses and workshops
Compared to my many other professional membership experiences, TheCR Network has been, by far, the most beneficial and enjoyable.

LET'S TALK ROI
Membership provides significant value, almost immediately.
TheCR Network is full of professionals working with online community programs at respected brands. This is not where volunteer moderators and brands with a community of dozens on facebook hang out.
You are leading community - leading change, at a great brand, and everyone has an opinion. Make sure you get advice and ideas from peers who understand what you do, because they do it, too.
- The value of information: Get detailed answers, from trusted experts and peers, without having to bring in expensive consultants or pay lots of subscription feeds
- The value of time: Get your questions answered in one place, from people you know you can trust
- The value of security: TheCR Network is a safe, confidential place to ask hard questions, and get real answers on vendors, crises, and more.
- The value of development: Stay informed with unlimited access to real-time, high-value information and connections with peer
- The value of connecting: Until we can meet again at conferences and networking events, find your tribe and make meaningful connections with a global network of community leaders
