Great perspective. Did you come on as a part-time CM as a community member or get "hired on"?

The community is a brand-spanking new initiative so everyone is new, myself included. Considering the institutional barriers that I have to contend with (I'll just say that the program was obviously never designed with community in mind), I do not think one can launch a community past its "inception" and "establishment" phases only part time. In my case, I know I put a lot more hours than just the 20 I put on my timesheet... Having said that, I could see a PT-CM possibly working once a community has reached a point of "establishment" and maturity.
