Do you love gloving? Do you wish you had a thriving community in your area? Do you want FNL’s and event meet-ups?
Imagine your local area teeming with glovers trading shows and exchanging concepts, just loving life and enjoying the same passion as you. What if you could be the reason for it?
Vision. Humility. Sacrifice. These virtues have made passionate glovers into community leaders. With that said, if lifting or creating your local scene appeals to you, then you might have what it takes to be a community leader. Here are some tips to get started:
Have a Vision for Your Community
Identify why a community is struggling or doesn’t exist. Then, address the issue to the best of your ability.
Find like-minded people who share your passion. Together, you’ll also have strength in numbers and find solutions to develop your scene!

Spread the G-Love
Find glovers in your local area, neighboring cities or towns, and get each other hyped. You can even get new folks interested in this beautiful art form.
Create an Environment that Promotes Growth
Organize glover meet-ups and hangouts. Throw lab sessions. Even hold competitions and giveaways!
Be a Role Model
If you are not respected and humble, all of this can come crumbling down. Remember that you should always promote positivity and good vibes, so others will do the same.
A Vulcan Pro-Tip
The blunt truth is that building your community takes time and dedication. As a leader of New York’s Empire Flow, I learned that I need to be on social media almost 24/7, be prepared to socialize in any situation and be willing to travel to reach out to people in order to expand the scene.
You really have to sacrifice, if you want to push your local gloving movement. Stay tuned for more “Building Your Community.”
