Next Online Community Roundtable: 12/16 at Yahoo!

The next Online Community Roundtable is Thursday, December 16th, at Yahoo! in Sunnyvale, CA.

I’ve been hosting the Roundtables since July of 2005, gathering community and social media strategists to discuss real world problems, opportunities and techniques to create successful social strategies.

The format is conversational – the first hour is social, and the next 2 hours are a facilitated discussion about topics the group surfaces during the social hour.

If you work in the online community field and are in the neighborhood on the 16th, I encourage you to join us.
