Introducing TCM’s Monthly Community Manager Spotlight!

SpotlightWant to get to know community managers a little bit better?   Are you curious what other CM’s toughest struggles are? What about their favorite resources? Or just want a peek into what their daily work-life is like?  In an effort to offer deeper dives into what Community Managers do to make their communities run so effortlessly, we’re launching a monthly feature of a different CM every month so we can learn best practices and see what exciting projects they’re working on.

We want you to tell us who your favorite Community Managers are so we can host a short video interview with them and ask a few questions to help us better understand their successes, challenges, current projects and much more.  Our hope is to not only discover new tips and tools, but also track trends related to our industry and get to know community managers across the country.

The benefits of being featured include but are not limited to:

  • bragging rights
  • increased visibility of campaigns or case studies related to a brand
  • praise of your industry peers
  • exposure of your brand or community

Nominate Yourself or Your Favorite Community Manager

Nominate an active Community Manager who has great insight to share with the CM community by tweeting @thecmgr or emailing
Please include their Name/Twitter handle, what community they manage, and why you think they deserve to be featured by November 4th. Please be more specific than “They’re awesome!” or “They Rock SO much!”
We will select from your nominations and feature our first highlighted Community Manager in November!
The question is simple —  who has inspired you lately?
