For those that don’t know, Slack is a cloud-based team collaboration tool. It will replace a lot of your email (especially those back and forth discussions), help keep everyone in the loop, and give you a place to easily communicate with staff and other members, regardless of their physical location.
One of Slack’s biggest advantages as a member community are its threaded conversations (channels) to host real-time chat, in turn promoting real-time engagement. Members have the freedom to join and contribute to the channels most relevant to their interests, and avoid sifting through a stream of general content. Plus, having categorized conversations in channels makes them easier to find and reference later. Any member with an internet connection can access Slack and contribute to the conversation, and easily see the conversations that are new since their last visit.
