Mark your calendars for Community Manager Appreciation Day on Monday January 23!
Ben Martin, KiKi L’Italien, Maggie McGary, Susan Cato and I have teamed up to manage the event this year, and whooo boy do we have some awesome stuff in the works!
- There will be an eight hour, live webathon from 9am to 5pm EST featuring some outstanding speakers and community manager panels, headlined by Jeremiah Owyang, the founder of Community Manager Appreciation Day.
- A Community Manager of the Year award, with a HUGE prize valued at over $1,000 including a complimentary registration to the CMX Summit, roundtrip airfare on Southwest Airlines, and a $500 travel stipend.
- We’re introducing a new tradition: The CMAD Cheers! At 5pm EST, we’ll have a special toast prepared for community managers, so be ready to raise your beer, coffee, coffee-flavored beer, champagne, champagne-flavored coffee, or whatever you want to imbibe, and join in the toast.
Please RSVP for CMAD on Facebook (just so we get an idea of numbers! The event is free to participate in and you do not need to register to participate… but registering helps get the word out!)
