You’d like to attend a meetup but don’t know where to find one? Looking for a job but don’t know where to start looking? Want to learn more about product management but have no time or money to spare on courses or books? Then, you’ve come to the right place!

Here we are listing some of the largest and most active communities for Product Managers. These communities bring together PMs from all around the world with one goal in mind — helping each other become better PMs.

As a Product Manager, we are always busy and there are no breaks from creating, launching, and maintaining our products. However, there is still time to learn about new ways of working. There are also times when we want to connect with other product managers who can give us advice on how to improve or even just provide some company due to the nature of our work.

The biggest benefit of joining a product management community is that it keeps improving your networking skills, builds relationships with like-minded people, and gives you access to valuable resources and tools. To give you easy access to these communities we have segregated the communities based on the channels.
