If your association is looking to get a head start on its social media strategy, a series of upcoming workshops across Australia hosted by Access1st partner Mel Kettle is sure to be of interest.
Mel is a communications and social media expert, speaker, author, trainer and mentor with a focus on helping associations and not-for-profits communicate authentically, increase member engagement and create thriving online communities.
In July, Mel will host a series of workshops across Australia at the following locations (click links for information on content and how to register):
In the interactive workshops, Mel will outline how to use social media to boost member engagement, and generate a return on investment. She will also share relevant, real-life examples and practical tips that any association can action.
The full price to attend is normally $550 per person, but Access1st partner associations pay just $440 per person by entering code Access1st at online checkout. Concession rates of $220 are also available to associations and not-for-profits with a turnover of less than $200,000 per annum. Contact Mel directly for the concessional code.
Attendees at the workshops also receive a copy of Mel's book The Social Association, which was released in February 2018.
"Social media allows associations and non-profits to build real relationships with their members, so they understand the benefits of membership and feel like a valued part of your community," Mel (pictured) explained.
"Membership organisations that aren't harnessing the strength of social media are missing out on a major engagement opportunity, and these workshops represent a great chance to formulate a plan of action to capitalise on that."
Mel joined the Access1st network earlier this year and offers discounted communications and social media workshops to our association partners. Find out more about Mel on her website or, even better, find her on social media!
