YOU’RE INVITED: Community Manager Appreciation Day, Washington DC #CMAD

Next Monday, January 26 is Community Manager Appreciation Day! How awesome is that?

Community is what we all do, and we’re passionate about it. Let’s use this time to share our passion. Definitely check out what’s going on for CMAD this year, including 24 hours of Google+ hangouts and Community Manager Appreciation Awards, on the official website.
