The Community Leadership Summit 2011 is the third incarnation of the popular free event designed to bring together community leaders and managers and the projects and organizations that are interested in growing and empowering a strong community. It takes place from 23rd – 24th July 2011 in Portland, Oregon and is the weekend immediately before OSCON, so this is a great chance to join both events in the same trip!
The event provides an unconference style schedule in which attendees can discuss, debate and explore topics. This is augmented with a range of scheduled talks, panel discussions, networking opportunities and more.
The event provides the first opportunity of its kind to bring together the leading minds in the field with new community builders to discuss topics such as governance, creating collaborative environments, conflict resolution, transparency, open infrastructure, social networking, commercial investment in community, engineering vs. marketing approaches to community leadership and much more.
CLS brings together community managers and leaders from all different walks of life. We already have been registered who are coming from Rackspace, Open Source Bridge, Microsoft, Oracle, MySQL, MeeGo, Xen, Adobe, O’Reilly, Eucalytpus, Google, Stanford University and more. It is a great environment to meet new people, have some great discussions, and have a great time.
