Today is the Day to Celebrate Your Community Managers

Lithium Alumni (Retired)

It’s not often we celebrate specific roles within an organization. So it speaks volumes that Community Managers have a day dedicated to their contributions. In honor of Community Manager Appreciation Day, we want to give our thanks for the huge impact community managers have on their organizations. 


I recognize and I hope your organizations appreciate that your contributions help drive real business objectives. It was a pleasant surprise to learn that 85% of you coach your executives on best community practices—and often on other social strategies too. 


In our own Lithium Community, we now have over 550 Lithium Certified Community Managers and it’s outstanding what you do on a daily basis. Did you know in 2014 as a group you spent more than 1.8 million minutes, which equates to more than 3.5 years, connecting with fellow members? 


Spend some time learning more from our Community Managers by watching our newly launched “Community Manager Star Spotlight” blog series. Be sure to also check out our Caption This contest and our new #CMAD 2015 badge.


Lastly, if you haven't yet, watch my quick video above to see what else we are doing to celebrate you today and for the rest of the year.


Happy Community Manager Appreciation Day!
