A shortcut to finding people you can connect and collaborate with is to check out The Academy for the Marketing and Communication Community’s recurring community meetings and the ASU Marketing and Communication workspace on Slack.
While we will gather together in person for Summer Camp during the week of July 10-14, you can stay up to date and connect with colleagues during monthly or bimonthly community meetings often held on Zoom to ensure access for all ASU locations.
Let's highlight a few of the meetings and Slack communities you can take advantage of:
For web community members, there’s a plethora of options:
