Meet Your Product Advisory Council

The mission of the Product Advisory Council is to help us prioritize our product roadmap, develop additional service or program offerings, and engage in a dialogue to share member, organization, and industry perspectives on a myriad of technology, social media, and community management topics.

These members were selected based on their strong product knowledge, technical acumen, sharing forward thinking ideas, and collaborative spirit. They also represent a vast array of major industries and span different membership and staff sizes to fully represent our client base.
