Cat Herding 101: Best Practices for Fostering an Engaged and Effective Online Community

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Depending on what sector we come from, the words “community organizing/management” might invoke images of canvassing with flyers and clipboards or moderating online forums and high-fiving code contributors. Regardless, when we coordinate volunteers, email program participants, and chat with community members via social media, we are ultimately organizing and developing community.

Whether your supporters are contributing content, volunteering, participating in forum discussions, or engaging on social media, you can play an important community management role. This session will include a review of community management principles and core practices, diverse examples of community management at work, and discussion about the application of community management in our organizations.
