What is TheCR Connect?

TheCR Connect – now in its third year – is a two-day workshop experience, unlike any event you’ve been to before. We combine tactical hands-on roundtables, actionable case studies, engaged networking and inspiring speakers so you walk away with fresh energy and new ideas to implement immediately.

Participation is limited to ensure that real conversations happen, that every participant contributes and that everyone walks away with the connections and inspiration to affect real change in their community.

Who is TheCR Connect For?

TheCR Connect is exclusively for community practitioners – those engaged in the development, implementation, management and measurement of community initiatives. You might be a community manager for a 5,000 person internal community, the community specialist at a start-up, or the director of community for a Fortune 500 brand.

TheCR Connect is for people who want to:

  • walk away inspired to improve their community
  • get their hands dirty in practical workshops
  • find the solutions to their community challenges
  • connect with other community professionals
  • share their knowledge and learn from others

Is TheCR Connect for you?
