Find the official event at http://CMXSummit.com

CMX Summit is a new event bringing together the world’s greatest community minds to share unique perspectives, experiences and ideas all around community building. 

Our industry has never come together quite like this. We have Community Managers, Directors and Executives flying in from all over the world, representing brands like Google, Buzzfeed, TED, Huffington Post, Salesforce, Amazon, Autodesk, Adobe, Lyft, Apple, Facebook, Eventbrite, Yelp, Soundcloud, Moz, 500 Startups, Flipboard, Zozi, Yahoo, oDesk, Atlassian, Spark Capital, Nestle and many many more. 

Community comes hand-in-hand with humanity. Since the beginning of time people have formed communities to survive, innovate and thrive. 

Today, communities have expanded to massive scale that can exist beyond physical borders, involving millions of people. At the same time, online tools are making it possible for people to come together and help each other offline in exciting and innovative ways. 

More people are building communities for a living today than ever before in history. 

As the community space continues to grow rapidly, we felt that there needed to be a high quality conference to bring our industry together. We want to drive meaningful conversations around your experiences and ideas while being inspired by the unique thought leaders both from within the community space and from other fields. 

CMX Summit will not focus on social media marketing or advertising. Social media may be discussed but only when applied to building true community. 

By doing so, we hope we can create more opportunities for massively successful communities to be built all over the world by community builders who came away from this event inspired and with a sense of belonging to the community that we create here at the CMX Summit. 

Who is CMX Summit built for?
Community Builders - Anyone creating communities from the ground up, online and offline
Community Managers - Professionals responsible for growing and maintaining communities
CEO, Founders and Product Managers - Anyone creating products that require user-to-user interaction
CMX Summit

Do you have any other advice for a CM that has to write their community guidelines?

Asking for help is more effective than telling members what is in it for them when looking to collaborate.

Hey guys,  we're trying to build an extremely simple, step by step crash course to motivate regular people to learn how to cook for themselves. It's free. If you're new to cooking, I'd love to hear what you think.  If you already know how to cook, I'd love your feedback too ^_^

Seasoning.
People who are just learning their way around the kitchen are always asking me how they combine spices and herbs to season effectively. there are some geniuses out there on this subject, to name one, #RebeccaKatz  from Marin County, California, who has written 3 or 4 books now, including her latest one, #TheLongevityKitchen . Amazing resource for #yum .
(i have lots of experience and ideas of my own, but i'll let those percolate to the surface as i get more involved here)
