Me with the TechSoup team at the Nonprofit Commons, plus Rhiannon and Zinnia, who will be community managing after I leave.
Last Friday, I facilitated my last Nonprofit Commons meeting as community manager. It was a day for saying farewell to this chapter of my work, and thanking all of the people in the community who have made the position so enjoyable and worthwhile.
Lots of nice things were said about me, so it's fortunate that avatars don't blush. Some of the sweetest comments:
Nany Kayo: thanks, Rik. You have been an inspiration.
In Kenzo: Honored by your work here, you have always made sure we are in capable hands and now is no exception :)
Rhiannon Chatnoir: Rik it is always a pleasure to see in action and work with you in virtual or real life
Glitteractica Cookie: CHEERS to you Rik! you ROCK
Jerry Buchko: Thanks again for all of your work on behalf of the community Rik! :D
Buffy Beale: Thanks for all you've done RIk, leading us each week and bringing in interesting speakers
All the best to Zinnia Zauber, interim community manager this summer, and Rhiannon Chatnoir, permanent community manager coming on board in the fall. It makes it easier to leave knowing that there are awesome people taking the helm in my place.
