Community Leadership Summit 2010
Community Managers Converge On PDX
ZS journeyed down to the Oregon Convention Center to participate in day two the Community Leadership Summit 2010 which is a bar camp/open spaces style unconference meeting of the minds for community management and community managers. Community people flew in from as far away as Denmark and Russia for this event, it was definitely a very diverse mix of CMs.
The Community Management Community
Session on How To Stop Killing Your Community
One of the sessions I liked the most was the first one of the day on a rarely discussed topic of how to stop killing your communities a topic that organizations have to deal with.
It was a big and complicated (somewhat political) topic to tackle but the moderators did a great job of keeping the conversation focused in the context of their original idea. You can read the notes from the session on the CLM Wiki.

Change Management and Community Management Session
Topic: Change Management and Community Management – Open Discussion
Time: 2PM PST on Sunday July 18th 2010
Location: Room 151 Oregon Convention Center, (Slot 3 Day 2)
In the afternoon ZS led/moderated open session on change management and community management. I enjoyed the session because there was a vocal group of fellow CM’er discussing all of the aspects and types of Change Management across different types of communities, industries and fields. The international community that had flown in from Europe lent a unique flavor to the session and it was intriguing listening to the different types of change issues and constraints (laws, unions, culture) effect both change management and community management.
