The Community Roundtable Connect (TheCR Connect) is the annual community summit or workshop organized by the The Community Roundtable (TheCR) and its network. TheCR Connect is a three-day learning conference exclusively for online community practitioners – those engaged in the development, implementation, management, and measurement of community initiatives.

It was (?) a vendor-free, intimate, interactive 2-days event/workshop designed to maximize participation – to ensure that open conversations flow freely between community practitioners.

In conjunction with the TheCR Connect Awards, a 1st day pre-conference reception and, a pre-conference Community Solutions Showcase (since 2019).
