Nominations are open for the 2024 Community Manager Awards

Listen to this post!


In the ever-evolving landscape of coworking spaces, one role stands out as the beating heart of the community: the Community Manager. These unsung heroes are the architects of belonging, the curators of collaboration, and the catalysts of creativity. And it's time we shine a spotlight on their invaluable contributions.

These folks are the glue that holds it all together

Picture a coworking space buzzing with activity — freelancers tapping away at their keyboards, startup teams brainstorming in meeting rooms, and entrepreneurs networking over coffee. Beneath this dynamic energy is the steady hand of the Community Manager, weaving the threads that transform a shared workspace into a thriving community.

They are the ones who greet new members with a warm smile, making them feel immediately at home. They often organize events that foster connections and facilitate knowledge-sharing. They mediate conflicts with empathy and diplomacy, ensuring the space remains a harmonious haven for all.

In essence, Community Managers are the glue that holds the coworking experience together. Without their tireless efforts, a coworking space would be merely a collection of desks and chairs, devoid of the vibrancy and synergy that make these spaces so unique and invaluable.

“These awards are our way of recognizing those who embody exceptional hospitality and consistently go above and beyond to make a significant impact in their communities,” as the GWA team explained.

Coworks is honored to honor the best of the best

At Coworks, we understand the pivotal role Community Managers play in the success of coworking spaces. That's why, for the third consecutive year, we are proud to sponsor the Community Manager Awards at the Global Workspace Association's (GWA) annual FlexForward conference.
