We are happy to introduce to you the latest member of the BigTent team, Adriana Cerundolo, as BigTent’s Community Manager.
Adriana has been interested in fostering community and strengthening relationships ever since being a Transfer Student Councilor on the Brown University campus. Before embracing the role of Community Manager, Adriana started at BigTent as a Campaign Manager, where she became well-versed in the product and learned firsthand the value of BigTent and its groups. She brings to the role experience in project management, communication and marketing from her former roles at Citrix Systems, Inc. and Federated Media Publishing.
As Community Manager, Adriana will support the BigTent community by providing regular admin and member tips on getting the most from your group, sharing relevant news and updates, spotlighting new and interesting groups through our blog, and being another resource to answer your questions. Also, starting next month, she will be relaunching our online BigTent training sessions.
When she’s not keeping BigTent members up-to-date with the latest news and tips, Adriana can be found biking through the city, playing piano, practicing yoga, or browsing the local farmers market. She urges you to drop a TentMail note to say hi, as she loves making new friends.
Please join us in welcoming Adriana!

We’re excited to introduce to you our next group highlight, Bayside Career Coaching!
We recently had the opportunity to speak with Dan Lott, Ministry Leader of Bayside Career Coaching, about his group, using BigTent and their goals for the future:
Q: How did your group start and how many members do you have?
A: We started because we saw a need to encourage and support individuals in job transition. As a larger church we felt we could serve our own members as well as individuals in the community. Since starting in February 2009 we have registered 1,500 individuals and have seen 347 become re-employed.
Q: Why did your group choose/or switch to BigTent?
A: We chose Big Tent because of its graphical user interface and the functions that 1 – allowed individual privacy, 2 – forums, 3 – subgroups, 4 – file storage, 5 – news distribution and 6 – calendaring.
Q: What is your favorite BigTent feature?
A: We use the forums extensively to share information amongst the members and to post job information when we hear about an open job.
Q: What are a few of the goals your group has for the future?
A: We doubled the successfully re-employed numbers from 2009 to 2010 and would like to see the same result for 2010 to 2011. We are over halfway to that goal.
Thank you to Dan and Bayside Career Coaching for sharing your story with us!
