The New Member Journey

(Carson Weitnauer) #1

Hi friends,

When you join an established and growing community, it helps to know what you can do to join in! To make it clear and simple for you to become a regular member of RZIM Connect, we have created a ‘new member journey’ that will guide you through the process.

Stage 1: Join In
In this stage, you’re asked to create an account, read five posts, and introduce yourself in the #welcome-to-connect Category.

We want you to get a sense of how we respectfully and thoughtfully communicate - and we want to warmly welcome you!

Take your time to read posts, learn the culture, and search the community for answers to questions that you may have. There’s no rush - we’re so glad you’re here!

Stage 2: Get Started
In this stage, you’re asked to read thirty posts, like five posts, and say hello to another new member in the #welcome-to-connect Category.

By doing so, you’ll become more familiar with the culture of RZIM Connect and help make it a friendly, hospitable place.

Stage 3: Get Connected

In this stage, you’re asked to join an interest group (any of the groups that start with “Interested_In…”), contribute to a discussion, and ask a question.

By adding your voice to one conversation and starting another, you’ll directly contribute to the respectful, thoughtful culture of RZIM Connect.

Stage 4: Get Engaged

In this stage, you’re asked to read 100 posts, like 10 posts, and invite 5 friends to join RZIM Connect.

In this way, you’ll really get to know some of the other active members - and invite your friends to be part of this amazing community!

Stage 5: Thank You

Once you get to the final stage of the process, we’ll communicate how much you’ve contributed to RZIM Connect. We are grateful for every member and all that you contribute to the community!

If you have any questions about the process, please ask them here!
