We're looking to do a few different things to get us started down this path - Here's a few of the things we're kicking off work on this week - Event component - Will pull in the specified event(s) that exist for that group. This will sit on our Khoros User Group pages and/or used to highlight specific events on our UG landing page. 'RSVP' will link to the existing Bevy registration page for now - We debated doing the entire flow ourselves but figured we'd take some baby steps 🐥 We're also building an Upcoming Event's component that will have some various parameters to control what it shows based on where it is used. We'll also be mirroring a version of it to act as a "My Events" component in your Khoros User Profile which will let them un-rsvp / Download their tickets. We're also going to make a near mirror image of their existing 'Find a group near you' component, but with some customization that we plan to add in. And finally, we're really pending Khoros to release the full API for Group Hubs, but once that is released we'll create a combined "Join" / "Leave" experience that will throw you into both systems (Khoros/Bevy) at the same time. Hopefully we'll have it ready for production in ~30-45 days and can roll it out at the same time we transition our existing Khoros Groups into Group Hubs!

@StanGromer Yes!! We could have made this way more beautiful And full-featured with some help from a designer and developer... and like three months. Instead I made it in an evening, and it serves its purpose just fine!!

In this time of the year it is easy to get caught up in to-do lists and therefore overwhelmed by tasks/shopping/recaps. However, it is important to keep an eye on the fact that next month is not only the start of a new year, but also a new decade.
We should take a little time for gratitude and goals, and that is what this post is about - specifically for Community Managers.
Community Manager Appreciation/Advancement Day is January 27th. CMX is putting a lot of effort into this most important of holidays, and they have chosen Self Care as the theme. And not the "I'm gonna get a massage this weekend," type of self-care, but more the "how can I build a life I never want to escape from?" kind of serious, hard work self-care.
Community Industry Awards - CMX
Key Dates - Nominations are open for a variety of categories, and they close January 8th. Voting is January 15th-22.
Community Managers Careers and Compensation - Community Roundtable
Report on career paths, compensation, and more. In our own communities, having benchmarks is critical to set relevant goals, and we should implement the same practice in our careers.
Khoros CMAD Activities - COMING SOON!
We will also have a contest as well as some appreciation activities and some content we have assembled to help Community Managers succeed in 2020. Stay tuned to this blog and our Atlas Insights blog for updates.
And that's it for a brief update on the CMAD goings on in January. What are you looking for in 2020? How can we help?
