    This special AuSAE Workshop is a fantastic way to learn how to use social media to effectively recruit, retain and engage with members. 

    Communication in the digital age – is social media the be all and end all? The business world has changed how it communicates, with social media becoming increasingly common. It seems that there is a bright new shiny social media channel or technology every second week. What we need to remember, is that at the heart, nothing should have changed. People still do business with people they know, like and trust. Service excellence and consistency of value are essential to business success. In this workshop Mel will help you understand what is real and what is smoke and mirrors when it comes to effective communication today.

    Attend this special one day workshop and learn: 

    • how to be heard by your market and connect with your members so they understand the value of your association
    • strategies to communicate effectively with millennials
    • how to identify the right social media channels for your association
    • why social media is not designed as a sales tool, but is instead intended to build trust and authority
    • how to create and leverage content that your members will value
    • how to effectively use social media in 30 minutes a day
    • how to mitigate your social media risk
    • why you need a social media policy and how to write one that works.

    Delegates will be offered ample opportunity to ask questions and engage with other delegates to exchange ideas and information

    Topic: Same or Different: What the Not for Profit sector can learn from the For Profit sector 

    While the two sectors have vastly different objectives and play very different roles in society, there is a lot the Not for Profit and For Profit sectors can learn from one another. 

    This presentation will look at a comparison of the For Profit to Not for Profit, Corporate to Association sector, the differences of culture and strategy and the differences and similarities in meeting business challenges.

    Presenter: Wendy La Macchia, Business Manager, Queensland Justices Association

    Wendy La Macchia is currently Business Manager of the Queensland Justices Association which has over 6,000 members in Queensland and is turning 100 next year.

    Wendy is a manager by trade but with specialisation in the big picture. Having held positions in management across different industries and in both the For Profit and Not for Profit sector, Wendy has seen many big pictures in her working life. This includes in hospitality, engineering, distribution and associations. Success in drawing the big picture means taking a helicopter view of your organisation.
