At the beginning of this year Adobe announced the introduction of Adobe Community Champions to run in conjunction with the Adobe Community Professional program.
Liz Frederick posted the following in January to explain…
“Adobe Community Champions are the “megaphone” of the Adobe community, whose objective is to evangelize Adobe products beyond the existing circle of our Adobe ecosystem and helping connect people to the Adobe community.
ACCs are influencers who share information about Adobe products by reaching out to new community members both online and in real-time, connecting them with information and resources, and empowering them to become more active and engaged with Adobe and its community.
ACCs have been community ambassadors for Adobe in several parts of the world, engaging with community members in a number of different ways. We expect to see ACCs serving in a range of ways, from talking about Adobe at events or schools, to being involved in social media, and many more!
The program is equally important to Adobe as the ACP program. There’s more than one way to engage with the community, and now with two programs we can better support both ACPs and ACCs.”
