6 Ways to Celebrate Community Manager Appreciation Day in Style.

Updated: Jun 3, 2022

Did you know that January 22, 2018 is the ninth annual Community Manager Appreciation Day (CMAD)? How are you celebrating the community manager in your life; even if it maybe you.

Just a bit of background. CMAD was started in 2010 by Jeremiah Owyang, a California-based web strategist. It is “a way to recognize and celebrate the efforts of Community Managers aka Social Media Managers around the world using social media to improve customer experiences,” according to the CMAD Wikipedia page.

If you have no idea what a Community Manager does, no worries, the role is consistently being defined.

In the last few years, the event has grown from just an idea into physical meetings worldwide. 2011 saw the first CMAD meetups, with ones held in Boston, Texas and New York.There are lots of ways to say thank you to your company’s community manager(s).

People with cell phones

Here are six ways we at Caribbean Social Media HQ came up with to celebrate our community manager on CMAD:

1. Send a tweet expressing how much you value your community manager. I like this one: “I <3 community managers! #CMAD” Just make sure you use the #CMAD hashtag;If you live in the United States, you can attend a meetup near you;

2. Write a blog post highlighting the fabulous work done by your community manager (We loved this one); Send them a nice thank-you note;

3. Bake them something nice, take the team out to lunch or buy a round after work (We also loved this suggestion);Join a Community Manager Group;

4. Hire a Community Manager;

5. Make a video;

6. Create a slideshow with your community managers’ tips.

#CMAD is about you. Celebrate your day, share some stories and make some new friends!
