About this event

Community Management as a profession has been growing increasingly important. Quality community professionals are in high demand, and that means career opportunities. 

Some folks boosted their income by changing jobs or roles. Others got raises by proving their value. The bottom line was this – the average community professional compensation in a 2015 sample approached $80,000. Community strategists and community directors are regularly earning over $100,000.

What does community mean? 

What does a Community Manager do?

Where does it fit in the work culture? 

Why is this so important for companies and brands to engage in community? 

What’s the next opportunity down this career path?

Join CMX Connect DC in its launch event to support the community professionals in the Greater Washington, D.C. Region to grow and accelerate their career potential.
