Our mission at CMX is to help professional community builders thrive.

Despite being more connected than ever, the world seems to becoming an increasingly more lonely place. As a result, people are in need of a real community. A network of individuals that they can connect, share, and grow with. This desire for community is driving how we interact with each other on and offline. It also affects how people interact with businesses and organizations.

Today, people are looking for more than just a product… They’re looking for a sense of shared identity and belonging. They want to contribute to and be a part of something that they care about.

The result? More and more companies are hiring community professionals to grow and engage their communities of customers, employees, and partners. This has led to the growth of what we call the Community Industry: a profession that’s growing quickly, yet is still largely undefined.

Great, so what do we actually do?

To help professional community builders thrive in their work we focus on
providing them with world-class community programs and education.

Your Personal Network of Peers, Mentors, and Experts are waiting!
