Laura Oliver and I have been discussing getting together with other community managers in the UK for regular meet ups to chat, share ideas and meet likeminds.
The Community Manager already has a number of meet ups going on in the US – so we decided to bite the bullet and get the first one started in the UK – setting at date for the first meet up and hoping to get things really underway in the new year.
So if you work in any way with online communities, and want to meet others in a similar field please do come along to our first meet up on Thursday 15 December from 7-9pm. We now have a location – we’re meeting at the Slaughtered Lamb in Farringdon. Sign up here to come along.
For the first meet up, and since it’s the end of the year and close to Christmas, we’re just thinking it’d be nice to have a social affair and hopefully speak to people about what they’d like from future meet ups – maybe even making sure we have a steering group to help organise things. If you add yourself to the London group we’ll keep you updated on future meet ups – where we’re likely to hear from speakers and do some more exciting things.
Let me know any suggestions or ideas in comments here or over on the meet up page. And hopefully see you in a couple of weeks!
