#CMGRHangout presents: Creating Intentionality in Communities


The months following CMAD are perhaps my favorite months to plan #CMGRHangout episodes as we inevitably have a lot list of submitted topics that we weren’t able to cover during the 24 hour live stream. This week’s topic, Creating Intentionality in Communities, was suggested by Melissa Hill, Community Architect at The Theme Foundry, based on her experience living in an offline community and how she’s been able to apply the concepts of rallying around goals and action steps to her online communities.
