2020 Vision!

Happy New Year!  

I don't generally do New Year's Resolutions.  But I do pause to get a sense of what matters to me in a new year, and a recurring theme this year is Community. Which seems especially appropriate for thinking about how I can contribute to Dynamic Communities.  

I think in terms of what I can contribute vs. what I can get from the community, because in every situation I believe the saying, "Whatever is missing is what you aren't bringing".
Think about it.  Want more content on a particular topic? Research and present it. The engagement will inspire others, and the discussion will inform you as well.  Want more cross-pollination between the formerly separate groups, like CRM and Power Platform?  Join a discussion group you haven't visited before. Attend a webinar outside your core product. 
It all adds up to... well, a more dynamic community! 

So as I consider presentations for FOCUS, new format and topics for meetings as a Chapter Leader, and Webinars I could prepare, I challenge each of you to think of one thing you can bring to the community this year.  The community only thrives as a resource if we stretch to help each other.  

And, if you have an idea: bring that too, in the comments!

Let's make 2020 an amazing year of Community growth.
