CMX Connect: Creating Intrinsic Value with Community

Aug 1, 2019, 1:00 – 4:00 AM

San Francisco

In-person event

About this event

Let's talk about transactional and affinity vs mission motivated community members. Transactional motivations can be a bit more fickle. There are people paying for tangible benefits, and then those who provide funding because they believe in the intrinsic value of the creative output. Join us on July 31st for another event in San Francisco where we will talk to Mindy Day from Patreon and Emily Lakin from Yerba Buena Center for the Arts about how they have built communities full of intrinsic value.

We are thrilled to be collaborating with Susan Tenby and her group of community managers for this event. The San Francisco Community Managers’ Meetup (#OCTRIBE) has been a thriving community for community professionals for more than a decade, and we are excited to work together to bring the community this event.

A note about our venue:

All visitors will need to come in through the main entrance (at 185 Berry), walk straight across the courtyard to lobby 3, and go to the 6th floor. If they turn right and walk a few feet, the office is located on the right side of the hallway. There will be someone there to help you!
