Online Communities for Membership Organisations: What, Why and How - Select Seminar
1 min read
Many UK membership bodies are looking to bring community experiences online, but questions abound. What do online community platforms offer? What is the difference between a forum and a community? Is Facebook or LinkedIn the way to go? What platforms should we consider? Should I consider building it myself? How much does it cost? How do you staff online community? What do successful communities look like? Why do some community projects fail?
Where to start? Right here.
Mark Eichler, Principal Consultant at Cantarus, helped build a leading membership community solution used by over 1,000 membership bodies around the world. Mark will ensure participants advance their community knowledge well beyond the basics. Your deeper understanding will be facilitated through a detailed presentation, an in-depth look at three leading community platforms, answers to your questions, and take-away resources.
Cantarus looks forward to hosting this free Select Seminar with MemberWise on 10th March 2020 at 9:00 am - 1:15 pm. The seminar will take place at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH.
