What are your favourite community building playbooks for new CMs?

Hey all! I just started a community for my university's technology club. Specifically, it is a community of mentors and mentees to build many:many connections over Discord.

I'm curious what resources you'd recommend checking out to bolster engagement and leverage Discord.

To start, I've read Get Together. Where to next?

Hi Sam,

Congrats on starting your community! I haven't read the book, but I can speak from some personal experience.

How are you sourcing people into the community? Do you already have ways to engage your members?

We have had some success with small groups that are highly focused on specific areas of tech, i.e. AI/ML, fintech, etc. "Technology" is kind of broad and because of that it's not guaranteed that people will match well, and you want them to have a positive experience early on in their lifetime as a member in order to get them to keep coming back.

So what types of things are you doing in your community now?
