SOCAPiE has created a number of new membership categories to make it an inclusive professional body.
Robert Crawford, Chief Executive, says: “I firmly believe that a professional body ought to be as inclusive as possible to engage members right across the spectrum of its operations. So, we have reviewed our membership categories to ensure there is something for everyone, from the newest student to the retired practitioner.”
Yet again I have been busy getting new features added to the SOCAP in Europe website. Unfortunately, we don't have the luxury of a development site so - although we try to be careful - sometimes this create challenges ....and problems! A few weeks ago, we updated our CRM system that integrates with the website and also provides the online event management system for us. I thought that the upgrade had gone smoothly and booked myself onto a couple of upcoming events without any difficulty. Therefore, I assumed everything was okay...
We've continued to press ahead over the last few weeks with developing the SOCAP in Europe presence on the web and social networks. We now have a SOCAP in Europe group on Linked In (group: SOCAP Europe) and are making more use of our Twitter account (socapie). You can use the new Linked In group to engage in discussion and debate and also to find out about upcoming events and other updates. If you are a LinkedIn member, join our group now!
I've been spending the last few weeks overseeing the implementation of SOCAP in Europe's new website and integrated CRM system. The objective has been to provide online features for some of the more 'admin heavy' tasks such as event and membership sign-up and, of course, to make everything work that much better for our members!
