The Community Leadership Summit 2017 brings together community leaders, organizers and managers and the projects and organizations that are interested in growing and empowering a strong community. The event pulls together the leading minds in community management, relations and online collaboration to discuss, debate and continue to refine the art of building an effective and capable community.

The event mixes together keynotes, unconference sessions, panels, and more to bring a rich set of content driven by a diverse audience.

The Community Leadership Summit 2017 is an entirely FREE event to attend, but registration is required.  http://www.communityleadershipsummit.com/register/

At the heart of Community Leadership Summit 2017 is an open unconference-style event in which everyone who attends is welcome to lead and contribute sessions on any topic that is relevant. These sessions are very much discussion sessions: the participants can interact directly, offer thoughts and experience, and share ideas and questions. These unconference sessions are also augmented with a series of presentations from leaders in the field, panel debates and networking opportunities.

The Community Leadership 2017 is the weekend before OSCON in the same venue.

It brings together community managers and leaders from a variety of industries to evolve how we build communities. It features keynotes, a full unconference (where attendees propose and run sessions), and social events.
