Our theme for this year is Connection. It might be our connection with our members, our members with each other, keeping engaged with stakeholders and always ensuring our connect with all three tiers of Government remains strong and positive so that all of our members have a channel and a voice. We have plenty of plans in place and look forward sharing those with you and working with our members throughout the year. Some of the activities we are working on include:
- Members first always in everything we do
- The first RCCIWA Members Forum un June 2021
- A possible RCCIWA Summit in November 2021
- A comprehensive regional economic survey, with localised results
- Further corporate membership opportunities for RCCIWA
- Starting work on our next strategic planning workshops. Current strategic plan here if you would like to have a read.
So, like all of our members – another very busy year ahead – we cant wait!
RCCIWA Info Sharing – Member Record Management
One of the operational questions we are asked about regularly is what type of CRM’s or members record system is best. Our members all use a variety of programs and platforms for their record management, with some have their own bespoke program. There is no one system used by all, as the needs and size of our members varies so much. An excel spreadsheet also still does the job very effectively. We asked our members for feedback on the system they use and you will find a summary of the feedback we have had to date here.
