The Community Collective is a free community for community builders that organizes monthly meetups in Australia and New Zealand.

The community is invite-only. This means that in order to join, you need to complete an application form and wait to be accepted. Once you are in, you will start to receive invitations to monthly meetups. The meetups are a great way to interact with other members, meet like-minded community builders, and exchange knowledge with peers.

On the other hand, The Community Collective also organizes other virtual events and activities. These include webinars, interviews with experts, panels, and more. Additionally, there is a 7-week cohort and one-on-one coaching for those who want more personalized help when building their communities.

Lastly, don't forget to check out the community's job board if you are looking to get new career opportunities!
