- Apr 26 2019 – Welcoming new members to your union. Many unions are working on modernising their online joining processes, and getting good results. But getting people to join is only the first stage. What happens next is just as important if we’re to keep them in membership longer term. How can we give new members a warm welcome to the union, and provide the information, services and opportunities they might need in the first weeks after becoming a member? 1pm to 4pm, Congress House, London. Register online here.
- Apr 29 2019 – #digitalunions meetup. Come along to hear the experiences, experiments and learnings from union digital projects that have (or haven’t) worked. Five speakers will have 10 minutes to share a recent success story from their work. Then we’ll have time for discussion of any topics that interest us. And join us afterwards for a drink in the bar. Have something you’d like to share or hear about? Let us know here. 6pm-8pm, venue TBC (central London/Bloomsbury area)
