Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 26, 2007
CommunitEy, pronounced commun-uh-tay, launches as a community-based online business networking site on May 1st. The site provides business professionals a platform to network with others in affinity group environments. These affinity groups range from traditional networking organizations like business associations, alumni clubs, private clubs, and networking groups to non-traditional organizations like private schools, churches and other faith-based institutions.
According to Michael Q. Parker, president and founder, "CommunitEy differs from existing business networking sites because we give our members the necessary tools to drive commerce with each other, not just communicate. In addition, business is done with other professionals in smaller, community-oriented environments. We call these communitEys. The site allows members to access their respective Communitey member's professional profiles, company/organization profiles, classifieds, and message boards. With these tools, our members find the people, products, services, and information needed to grow a business or career. One of Communitey's key benefits, and differentiation from existing business networking sites, is that all this occurs among a group of people who share a connection where trust and familiarity are encouraged and rewarded."
CommunitEys are established and driven by group leaders called "CommunitEy Developers (CD)." CD's ensure that members are engaged, empowered, and encouraged to exchange information and resources with other group members. CD's require no special training or skills. They have the option of forming groups associated with existing organizations or, bringing together associates who want to participate in independent business networking groups. These independent groups are free from the constraints associated with established organizations. CD's decide if their group is private, requiring approval to join, or pubic and open to anyone with a connection to the group's membership or mission.
CommunitEy, ( "commun-uh-tay") provides business professionals effective, efficient, and economical business networking in online communities. The company's mission is to create commerce communities where like-minded business professionals can come together in affinity-based groups to grow businesses and careers.
