Are community manager conferences worth attending?

It depends on what you would be hoping to get out of them. Networking is the main benefit, and it's not something I really prioritize. So for me, the cost and time wouldn't be worth what I get out of it.

In my opinion, yes. They offer a wealth of information and networking opportunities for professionals. Conference topics often include case studies, best practices, and new trends in community management. Additionally, attendees can typically expect to hear from industry experts and network with their peers.

In general, community manager conferences can be a great way to learn new skills, network with other professionals, and get inspired.

I really want to get a second job but I am scared of losing my current one. Both companies are in same field, although not direct competitors so I know it’s technically “not allowed” however, this is the only way for me to get that $$ since I am not paid all that well.

Of course I won’t tell a single friend/coworker. Only my partner. And I don’t post work stuff on social media.
