Yo! Welcome @katelynrae, great to have you here! I love that you’re established in building offline community, and I especially loved your connection to your local communities - I often use that as my metaphor when talking about communities with the “uneducated”!
It’d be great to hear your thoughts on where the crossovers are, the similarities in building.[quote=“katelynrae, post:301, topic:2430”]
I sadly have never used any forum platforms like Discourse within my communities. All have been with Facebook, Meetup, LinkedIn and Slack
No need to be sad - us whatever works for the situation - the thing is community, people. I’m not convinced the venue is that important, as long as there is a venue.
