Welcome to our monthly Ask the CEO chat!
I would like to start by thanking you for joining me today. As always, I look forward to the helpful and thought-provoking comments these chats generate. Gather has seen some extraordinary growth in the past month, making our site even more of a world-class community. My time spent with you really helps our team focus our priorities and gives us insight into the needs and wants of our most valuable asset: our members.
To join the conversation, here are some helpful tips:
1) To see new comments and keep up with the discussion, you will need to periodically refresh your screen. You may refresh your view by using the refresh button on your browser, or the F5 key on your keyboard, or through the Ctrl+R key (on Windows) or CMD+R (On Mac) key combination.
2) Once you have posted a comment to the conversation, refresh your screen (see above). Don't worry about accidental double-posting of comments, as Gather technology prevents doing so without a screen refresh between posts. This will ensure that you can more quickly "chime in" with your thoughts.
I will be here for the next hour to listen and respond to your thoughts and ideas in the comments section below.
For those who are joining this chat for the first time and even for those who are returning, this is your time to let me, and the entire Gather team, know your thoughts. I encourage you to voice your opinions about everything Gather. I am excited about spending time with all of you -- so let's get started!
All the best,
Tom Gerace, CEO
