Socious marketing executive, Joshua Paul, will discuss managing private online communities during a session at the ASAE: The Center for Association Leadership’s Technology Conference & Expo on December 6th at 10:15 a.m. ET.
The 75-minute session will cover eight habits of highly successful online community managers. Attendees will come away with an understanding what to expect from an online community manager, how to invite community managers to the leadership table, and how to measure success.
The session will feature two other well-known online community management professionals - Maggie McGary, Online Community & Social Media Manager at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (asha.org) and Jim Storer, Co-Founder of The Community Roundtable (community-roundtable.com).
“When it comes to thriving online communities, technology is only half of the equation. Leaders at membership organizations need to be armed with the strategies and processes that are going to make their private online communities a measurable success for the long term,” said Joshua Paul of Socious.
The presentation and panel discussion is designed to provide C-level executives and other technology staff with an understanding of the importance of online community management and processes they can implement to ensure that their private online member communities are contributing to business-level goals.
The ASAE Technology Conference will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC from December 5-6, 2012.
