2021 was a year of transition for the Esri Community, we adapted to our new platform, processes, and rebranding of the community from GeoNet to Esri Community. Even with all the change we still experienced significant engagement across the community, and we experienced a 26% growth in membership over 2020!

In the broader community world, Esri Community earned two industry awards for the re-branding and re-launch of our community (Khoros Rookie of the Year and  Community Roundtable’s Outstanding Community Design 2021) and one industry award for our executive leadership (The Community Roundtable’s Community Leadership Award 2021).

All of this couldn’t be possible without our amazing community members and staff and distributors who regularly contribute to the community.  Last week, I announced our Esri Community contest winners, which recognizes those customer  members who stepped up  their engagement in 2021, by giving back to the community through valued contributions.  Now I would like to recognize our amazing Esri staff and distributors who regularly engaged in the community in 2021. To emphasize how important our staff are; in 2021, 40% of all Accepted Solutions were posted by Esri Staff & Distributors! 

Here are a few of our top contributors from Esri Staff and Distributors in 2021
