Help us plan Community events: Fill out your profile!
Hello OpenSpace Community!As we continue growing, we are starting to plan out different events to get you all connected and meeting each other. We especially want to hold regional events so you can network with those near you.In order to do this, we need your help!We need to know where you all are located, so we can coordinate events around your locations.All you have to do:Please make sure COUNTRY is filled out in your Community profile. Adding CITY would also help, but at a bare minimum, we are only asking for COUNTRY. NOTE - The CITY field is actually private so only you and the OpenSpace Community Managers (who are planning the events) can see your city. Other Community members won’t have access to that information should you choose to include it.From there, our team can gather the data to see what events in what locations would make most sense So essentially, completing the COUNTRY (and even CITY) field in your Community profile is like adding a vote for an event where you are
