You may have noticed some changes to our association’s website, USAWOA.org, recently. These changes are part of the USAWOA’s Membership Enhancement Project (MEP), which is giving our association’s digital presence an overhaul. Why is this important? Our digital presence is directly tied to our association’s visibility, credibility, and reputation. Let’s face it, digital communication is the most common form of communication now, either from websites, email, or social media sites, the way our association presents itself online makes a huge impact.

Many of our regions and chapters already have a digital presence through individual Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, or websites, however not all of these sites are maintained or functioning, also there is a lack of uniformity across the board. What kind of a picture is this sending to our current and potential future members?

What drives an impactful digital presence?

Meeting our members in the digital realm, where many already frequent on a daily basis, requires the association to provide a user-friendly experience regardless of the type of device, be it a computer, tablet, or other mobile devices. We must present strong video, photo, and graphic design content that is aesthetically pleasing and attention-grabbing; especially on media-forward platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Twitch.

The Membership Enhancement Project (MEP) provides centralized web hosting for regional and chapter websites. Instead of individual regions or chapters paying for their own hosted websites or using free sites with limited capabilities such as WordPress or GoogleSites, all USAWOA websites will be nested under the association’s domain (USAWOA.org) and will NOT have to pay a fee for this service. Currently, there three templates for Regional and five templates for Chapters to choose from. You can view the website templates at https://wsmc.usawoa-ppc.org/website_request.html

Introducing the USAWOA Web and Social Media Council (WSMC)

The Web and Social Media Council (WSMC) is a newly formed national standing committee established to administer our association’s digital presence by leveraging the talents of our members. The members appointed to the WSMC will be the primary leaders on how our association will be represented in the digital realm. The WSMC members will create a strong, clear, and visually enticing strategy across all digital platforms that align with our association’s mission.

The WSMC will manage and be the digital media stewards of the content of all USAWOA related websites and social media accounts. It will determine the strategies to increase our association's digital presence by focusing on the quality of content with guidelines for use of social media sites. For example, having fewer social media sites with solid engagement is far more impactful than having a weak presence on multiple platforms; the WSMC will develop strategies to determine which social media sites to focus our attention on.
