NMC Commons Launch Webinar, Featuring Enterprise Hive

6 March 2013 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

10 am PT / 12 pm CT / 1 pm ET

This webinar marks the official launch of the NMC Commons -- an online community where NMCers can engage with fellow members, put faces to names, and continue conversations between face to face meetings. This highly social platform comes to you via our partner Enterprise Hive. Thanks to their super social software, the NMC has a place online where members can connect and collaborate in a private, secure online community. Join the NMC and Enterprise Hive for this live event where we will unveil the NMC Commons and give you a tour along with tips for maximizing the features.

The NMC Commons provides members a wide range of easy-to-use social business tools, such as the ability to post job notices, initiate blogs, and use email, polling, and news and events functionality. The goal is for NMC members to seamlessly share information, projects, and ideas, while providing an archived, searchable database that contains technical and practical advice. Using the Dynamic Profile feature of HiveSocial, NMC members can find other members who share the same interests or can provide help to them based on the vast areas of expertise represented within the NMC Community.

This webinar is open to all -- NMC members and non-members. Please feel free to invite your friends and colleagues! After you register, you will receive a link to join the webinar the day before it takes place.
