Dennis McDonald - Managing Technology - The Use of Codevelopment and Networking to Improve Professional Association Membership Services

John Tropea - Delicious Community

This is Caravelis first paragraph (thanks to The Association Renewal Blog for bringing this article to my attention) : Many association leaders worry that today’s professionals lack interest in joining organizations, and they point to the declines in some association membership levels as evidence.

Understanding Communities of Practice

Collaborative Thinking

In CoP Series #5, Nancy addresses the question of CoP and social network: Is a CoP the same thing as a (social) network? The line between a community and a network is fuzzy in terms of membership, but the difference between a community of practice and a network is that the CoP is interested not just in the connections or relationships, but in the domain and practice.

Are Board Turnover Rates Limiting Diversity Opportunities and Growth?

Governance in a Networked World

We measured board turnover by averaging the year-to-year changes in board memberships since 2004. Concerns had also been raised that female participation on boards was more concentrated for females as it is for males, with females by far having more multiple board memberships.

Business models for communities

Learning Alliances

Although a low-cost, low profile strategy can be best for launching a community in the first place, using “free” tools can just mask them rather than explicitly address the issues connected with a community’s business model. It may be situated, but learning happens all over the place.

Housing communities “outside”

Specifically, how Staffordshire University hosted a community on best e-learning practices whose membership was largely outside the University.

Local democracy is important: but will we vote for it?

The creation of new local councils in London would give communities a voice and this in turn could help address some of the underlying causes of the recent London riots. Local councils have already been created in urban areas such as Leeds, Birmingham, Bradford and Milton Keynes and have helped address social issues caused by deprivation by providing community leadership and brokering relationships with Government at large.

He offers real-world examples and discusses tools while emphasizing key themes: Communities should be independent of organization structure; they are different from teams; are not sites, blogs or wikis; community leadership and membership should be voluntary; communities span boundaries; need a critical mass of members; start with as broad a scope as is reasonable; need to be actively nurtured; and more.”. Each of these issues needs to addressed and explained to prospective members.

Community Netiquette: How to Avoid Stepping on Virtual Toes

Community Guy

Learn a little about the membership. Understand what might concern them (or the community members they’re representing) about your participation and address those concerns directly and quickly. If half the membership is outside your own market, you will approach your conversations far differently than if there’s only a few members from outside your market. Most of us know that in the typical online community, it’s not kosher to post blatant marketing materials.

By Scott London Civic collaboration is a process of shared decision-making in which all the parties with a stake in a problem constructively explore their differences and develop a joint strategy for action.
