As many of you know, we hosted our third ever Groups Moderator Town Hall event in the Dallas area in early March.
At these events, we give local moderators an opportunity to come together to meet and exchange ideas with other Groups owners and moderators in their area, meet members of the Yahoo! Groups team, and ask direct questions of the team in a panel discussion. The feedback and suggestions we hear at these events provides the team with yet another avenue to identify opportunities to make improvements to the Yahoo! Groups product.
To get a glimpse of the most recent event in the Dallas area, check out the photo-stream on Flickr.
At the end of this post (below my signature), you’ll also find a podcast highlighting portions of our very first Groups Moderator Town Hall event held on the Yahoo! Campus in Sunnyvale last October. In this podcast you can hear opening remarks delivered by Brad Garlinghouse, SVP of Communications & Communities (which includes Yahoo! Groups, Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger, and Flickr), followed by some fun trivia with Mike Speiser, VP of Yahoo! Communities, and a portion of a testimonial given by the owner of the FlyLadyMentors group and FlyLady herself, Marla Cilley.
* Because this podcast was taped in October, some of the details shared, specifically the numbers, have changed – and have increased significantly on all counts.
We’re planning the next Groups Moderator Town Hall in the Atlanta, Georgia area in May. We’ll post more details soon, until then, if you are located in the Atlanta area, or are simply interested in being notified of events planned in your area, please submit your details here so we know where to contact you. Our goal is to plan Town Hall events in different cities throughout the year because we want to hear from you too!
