Join Rachel Happe and Mac Stephens from The Community Roundtable research team as they facilitate a discussion around highlights from The State of Community Management 2020 report.
There are two discussions, the first will focus on internal community insights and the second, external. An internal community is an employee community, intranet, or community of practice, which is sometimes referred to as a digital workplace initiative. An external community is a customer or partner community focused on customer support, product innovation, marketing initiatives, and brand awareness. Please choose the event that makes the most sense for you.
If you would like to participate in the Roundtable (be on video, ask questions live, share insights, etc.) please choose "participant" when you register. Each Roundtable is limited to 20 participants.
If you just want to observe the Roundtable (watch and ask questions via chat) please choose "observer" when you register.
If you are a member of TheCR Network you can rsvp for member-only events here.
