We are just beginning the mad rush of the fall and winter conference season, and I wanted to highlight a few events that I am participating in.
Online Community Roundtable: October 2 – San Jose, CA
The Online Community Roundtable series is a free netowrking event that I have been hosting since 2005. The Roundtables are designed to allow community managers and strategists to come together in person to network, share experiences and get feedback in a safe and respectful environment. The next Roundtable will be held on the Cisco campus in San Jose on October 2nd. For more information, and to request an invite, please join the Online Community Roundtable group on Facebook.
Online Community Summit: October 9-10 – Sonoma, CA
The Online Community Summit will be held in Sonoma, CA October 9-10. This is Forum One’s premier online community event that brings together senior online community staff from leading commercial and non-profit organizations.
Community Exchange Summit: October 14-15 – San Jose, CA
This is the inaugural year of the Community Exchange Summit, and I will be keynoting the event.
Marketing & Online Communities: November 5, New York City
The Marketing & Online Communities conference will explore the intersection of marketing and online communities, including how communities and social media are changing traditional marketing practices, and how marketing teams are evolving to meet new challenges and communicate more effectively and appropriately.
The Green Enterprise Unconference: December 3, Mountain View, CA
Forum One Communications (parent to Forum One Networks) has a rich history of focusing on initiatives that have positive social impact. We decided to take our growing expertise with the Unconference format and apply to an important and emergent sector: Enterprise Green initiatives. We expect 150-200 people coming together to discuss the opportunities and challenges with going green in the enterprise.
If you have questions about any of these events, please feel free to drop me a line.
