Top Community Managers

The Community Industry Awards celebrate the achievements of the best in the community industry. The 2022 season will be the third annual Community Industry Awards. We began in 2019, when the CMX team looked back on the year and were in awe of the incredible achievements of the people and organizations in this industry. We knew we needed to celebrate, publicly, and with a big splash, the top community managers and communities in this industry, so the Community industry Awards were born. This program has grown into an unstoppable celebration, loved by our community and the industry.

On Community Manager Advancement Day on January 25, 2021, we awarded 21 incredible community builders and community-focused organizations with the recognition they deserve. These community managers have been recognized for their excellence in community building and collaboration at the 2021 Community Industry Awards.

Here are the Top Communities and Community Managers of 2021
