Celebrate! It’s Community Manager Appreciation Day!

By | January 27, 2014
Today we are celebrating the fifth annual Community Manager Appreciation Day (CMAD) – a day steeped in social business history. (Sound the gong!) Straight out of the mouths of Wikipedians: Community Manager Appreciation Day takes place every 4th Monday of January as a way to recognize and celebrate the efforts of community managers around the world using social media and other tools to improve customer experiences. Back in good old 2010, the thoughtful and astute Jeremiah Owyang, of social business industry analyst fame, founded the special day of note. If you are not in community management or around it, you might think it is just one of the many “International [insert topic] Day” days. It’s not. CMAD was created to not only bring attention to the role of community managers, but also to help new community managers spread their wings, meet community management peers and learn more about the practice of community management.… Read more »

Zimbra Lends a Helping Hand at DFW Susan G. Komen 3-Day

By | November 21, 2013
I lost my mother to breast cancer in 1996. Back then, breast cancer was still a disease that wasn’t very well understood. Today, many organizations have made it their mission to provide resources and support people impacted by breast cancer year-round. While Breast Cancer Awareness Month ended last month, that doesn’t mean our support for the cause has to end as well. To continue our support as a company, the first weekend of this month, over a dozen Zimbra employees signed up to help out our customer, Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, at the organization’s 3-Day in Dallas. For those of you not familiar with the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure®, it is a three-day walk where those participating walk approximately 20 miles each day in support of breast cancer until they reach the closing ceremony on the third day.… Read more »
