Our Community Values

Be Generous

Community is in our DNA and essential to who we are. We live for the moments where we can step up to help another community member learn and grow in their career without asking for anything in return. We believe when one of us wins, we all win. We share our learnings with radical transparency. We leave no member behind.

Be Groundbreaking

CMX is a community for the bold and ambitious. We believe that community is the future of business and that we have an opportunity and responsibility to shape that future. We’re constantly experimenting and innovating. We challenge ourselves to grow and build new systems that future generations of community builders will benefit from.

Be Actively Inclusive

We believe that building inclusive spaces isn’t just the right thing to do — it also makes our community more valuable. We don’t expect our community to organically become diverse, equitable, and inclusive — we know we need to take an active role. We make sure that everyone in the industry can learn from the lessons we share, not just a select few. We seek out unheard voices and step back to make space for those voices. We work together to check our biases and improve.

CMX Slack

The CMX Slack Community facilitates the sharing of information, resources, and encouragement among over three thousand community professionals. If you share a passion for community and would like to get to know a great group of friendly peers, share your knowledge, and learn something new, join us!

CMX Connect is our distributed events program and educational resource for community builders, to connect community professionals with their peers in real time, at both virtual and in person events.
