Online Community Roundtable: June 12 in SF

As many of you know, I run a semi formal and somewhat-invitation-based networking group for online community pros with George Jaquette from Intuit.

We try to get together bi-monthly, alternating between the south bay and SF.

A little more information:

The intention of the events is to provide an open and safe
environment for community practitioners to share experiences and best
practices. As such, we have a few ground rules.

Ground Rules:

  • No sponsorships. Host organization provides space, food and beverages
  • No pitches. Presentations should be about sharing experiences,  having a discussion about a problem or issue you are facing, or reviewing a project or site you are working on
  • The guest list is up to Bill & George.
  • Bill and/or George sets final agenda based on topic appropriateness and time available
  • “Soft” NDA: No blogging, or discussion “in public” about  specific presentations, unless the presenter gives explicit permission.

5:30 – 6:30 Networking hour.
Drinks and food will be available.

6:30 – 8:00 Presentations.
After the networking hour, we’ll share thoughts on community. We
request that you bring a 1-2 slide deck to talk to. Topics can range

  • A report back from a conference
  • A new community that you have recently launched
  • A feature that you are developing, or are interested in discussing
  • Challenges that you are facing in developing, growing or managing your community
  • Or any other topic that you feel would be appropriate and enlightening to this audience.

If you are interested in an invitation, please drop me a note.

  1. For lack of a better channel… :-).

    In the unlikely event that I can drop around there in time for a meeting (or you happen to convene this side of the Atlantic) I would really appreciate a chance to participate.

    Spain’s not a very busy place for this kind of interests :-). Best regards,
