Community Leadership Summit 2012 Coming Soon!

Just a quick reminder that in just over a month we will be hosting the Community Leadership Summit 2012 in Portland, Oregon on from Sat, July 14, 2012 – Sun, July 15, 2012. The event happens the weekend before the OSCON conference, so this is a great opportunity to attend both events.

The Community Leadership Summit 2012 brings together community leaders, organizers and managers and the projects and organizations that are interested in growing and empowering a strong community.

This entirely free event pulls together the leading minds in community management, relations and online collaboration to discuss, debate and continue to refine the art of building an effective and capable community. We have over 250 people registered, and we would love to see you there too!

At the heart of Community Leadership Summit 2012 is an open unconference-style event in which everyone who attends is welcome to lead and contribute sessions on any topic that is relevant. These sessions are very much discussion sessions: the participants can interact directly, offer thoughts and experience, and share ideas and questions. These unconference sessions are also augmented with a series of presentations from leaders in the field, panel debates and networking opportunities.

Joining Us

You can find out more details about where the event is and how it works as well as seeing the registered attendance list. If you are interested in joining us, it is an entirely free event, but ask you to register here.

Plenaries

This year we are also going to be including a series of 15 minute plenary presentations that will happen after lunch on each day. These plenaries are designed to present interesting techniques, learnings, and case studies that will be of interest to community managers and leaders. If you are interesting in giving one of these plenaries, please email your topic and a summary of what you would like to speak about to jono At ubuntu DOT com.

Sponsorship

I am just in the process of finalizing our sponsors for the event and will be announcing them soon. We are a little under our sponsorship budget, so if you would be interested in sponsoring the event, please email me at jono AT ubuntu DOT com.
