Since the dawn of time (well, 2017) there’s been a Slack workspace where certain Community Leaders have come together to discuss all things Ohana. Whether that’s coordinating a Dreamin event, working out the volunteering schedule for a Basecamp, discussing how to use Event in a Box or to ask if anyone is available to do a last-minute stand-in presentation, this Slack workspace has been there for you to get help, reflection and assistance from your peers.
Only it wasn’t realise advertised beyond the Benelux. Currently it’s got around 120 members. Given the impact that Cornavirus is having on our community, this seems a good opportunity to advertise it’s existance, to enable us all to chat in a timely fashion with one another, support each other and exchange ideas.

Question 1: There’s other Slacks. Why should I join this one?
This Slack is focuses (mainly) on Salesforce Community Leadership matters. Even then there are different streams for Developers, Admins, Marketers and others. We don’t seek to duplicate, just to offer a space where we can all come together and focus on how to support and developer the best for our community.
Question 2: Aren’t the Communities Team going to provide a tool to help Community Group Leaders communicate with easier other, in an easier fashion?
Yes, they’re looking into it, but running into budgetary constraints (and free Slacks don’t meet Salesforce internal policy requirements). Also there are Community Leaders out there who part of the official Salesforce Program. YeurLeadin’ covers those groups too.
Question 3: There’s definitely a lot of references to YeurDreamin
You’ve caught us. Until 14th March 2020 this Slack space was known as “YeurDreamin”. Today, 15th March, we renamed it to YeurLeadin in honour of what it has grown to be, with a lot of help from the Ohana!
