Community Manager Appreciation Day.

Community Manager Appreciation Day (CMAD) is an annual celebration in the community industry. 

It is an opportunity for everyone in the industry to take a step back and truly appreciate the incredible work community builders do everyday.

This year, CMAD falls on January 24, 2022.

The CMAD Pledge

This year, CMX is encouraging companies to take our 2022 CMAD Pledge!

We are asking companies to pledge to give their community teams a paid professional development day on CMAD – a paid day away from their normal day-to-day tasks, giving community teams the chance to take a certification course, go to a CMAD event, or meet with other community professionals to get support.

Join these companies who have already taken our 2022 CMAD pledge:

What do you have to do?

  • Fill out this form to make your pledge
  • Give your community team a paid professional development day on January 24, 2022
  • Share the news of CMAD and the 2022 CMAD Pledge on social media using #CMAD2022
