Community Leadership Summit

The Community Leadership Summit was conceived back in 2009 by Jono Bacon, the community manager for the global Ubuntu community and author of The Art of Community by O’Reilly and he has organized it each year since then. Jono is a leading speaker and author on the topic of community governance, growth and collaborative development. He put together the summit as a first step in helping community managers and leaders to define and refine their work, share knowledge and make connections in a vendor neutral way.

Since then he has been joined by a team of organizers including Dave Nielson (active in the CloudCamp community), Van Riper (organizer of the CLS-West and active Google community manager), Sara Ford, Marsee Henon (community manager and liaison for O’Reilly) and others.
