Lithium Stars Program
Three types of membership
This program aims to recognize Lithium advocates and the different levels of participation that make up our amazing community, both online and offline. It runs on an annual basis, and Lithium Stars are inducted and formally recognized each year. To assist in the selection process, the Star Scoring system takes into consideration Lithium Community contributions, Lithium Certifications and Event attendance. Start participating today to improve your Star Score and achieve Star membership next year.
All-Stars are top contributors who are valued by Lithium and other community members. They actively participate in ideation, engage with other customers, share their insights and provide constructive feedback. They consistently keep the Lithium community thriving.
Rockstars are exceptional individuals who make up the top 1% in the Lithium Star Scoring system. They are members who have been certified through our training program and who routinely go above and beyond to assist other Lithium community members.
Heroes are Lithium's top advocates who have demonstrated their expertise in driving innovation and social programs at their organizations. These industry influencers offer a voice in Lithium's product direction and frequently share their expertise and best practices.
“I enjoy contributing my knowledge and expertise to my peers in the Lithosphere, and I am honored to be recognized by Lithium for doing so!”— Lili McDonald, Community Manager, National Instruments
“Seeing the ‘Lithium Star’ plaque on my wall reminds me every day that adding value, that making those around me more successful regardless of the badge they wear, is worth doing ... There is no such thing as a dumb question, a problem that completely defies solution, or (within reason) expertise that can't be shared. Thank you Lithium, and thank you to all the Stars.”— Warren Brill, Community Manger, HPE
“It's an honour to be nominated to the Lithium Stars program. Having a group of like-minded individuals to bounce ideas off and share expertise with is hugely beneficial and rewarding.”— Dan Kerrigan, Digital Project Manager, Telstra
“It's no surprise that a leading Community platform provider is pretty good at creating their own Community! Lithium welcomed me in to their network of experts and customers around the world as soon as I turned up, and each year that relationship has blossomed. It's great to be recognised by them and my peers, and they taught me everything I know!”— Jamie Johnston, Community and Social Media Manager, Tesco Bank
