What we're about

A meetup for community professionals leveraging the power of place!

We are focused on developing a collective for sharing creative and practical topics at the intersection of people, culture, and workplace. We're interested in creating a forum to discuss supporting people and culture through events and environments.

What we're thinking about (and hope you are too!): (http://workdesign.com/2014/06/closing-gap-facilities-managers-community-managers/)

• Physical design and community building: Enriching social environment, soliciting feedback on all elements of work and space to make the full experience the best possible.
• With work becoming more social, what is a workplace but a space in which to grow, support, and incubate a truly productive community?
• Community management, facilities management, people resources, and, technology support are converging in practice. We look to explore the emerging professional impacts.

Some food for thought:

Meet Silicon Valley’s Little Elves
The Perk Bubble Is Growing as Tech Booms Again
The Future of the Community Industry
