Call for participation - Sustaining Communities of Practice

Hello all, I thought of doing something different with my KM community call next month so I thought I would share it with you and see if I get any feedback. This time instead of having a single presenter I plan on having two or three people talk. Guess what the topic is? OK silly question. The topic is sustaining communities of practice and identifying what high performing communities means. Any of you reading this blog are welcome to send me a note if you would like to present on the call. The criteria is that you must know of a high performing community and be able to come with some characteristics of one.
Its looking like the call will be on October 14 at 10:30 pm central time but all speakers have not confirmed yet.
What I am trying to do is to get someone to speak to Social Networks and if they play a role in sustaining a community or not. Apparently there are several people who believe that social networks are the lifeblood of a community and therefore all organizations should indulge in social network analysis if their communities are to sustain themselves. I look forward to this call because I know I am going to learn a lot.
