Perhaps you’ve had occasion to visit the ACA website in the past week or two – if so, you’ll have noticed that it looks somewhat different! The process of systematically updating and improving the functionality of a website is a never ending one if the site is to remain relevant and of interest to users – this is of particular concern to the team here at the ACA as we are always working at improving our search engine optimisation in all states so we can generate more booking enquiries for member camps across the nation. Producing a website that is ‘mobile friendly’ is just one way to help us achieve that.
In the meantime, you may see some minor disruptions to the site as it undergoes some fairly major upgrades so we ask for your patience during this process. If you happen to notice anything that does not seem quite right, or you notice that there are links broken, we’d appreciate it if you could please let us know.
The 2016 -2017 ACA events calendar is starting to be populated with member training and workshops in response to the member survey sent out earlier this year. The first workshop, focusing on social media and marketing, is less than a fortnight away and is already well subscribed to – see the attached flyer if you are keen to learn more about harnessing the power of social media to promote your camp. Other workshops will include risk management and risk benefit, HR and financial planning, bike ed, anaphylaxis / allergies and more and will be, where possible, available by webinar to ensure that access is available to the widest possible audience.
You’ll also note that the International Camp Director’s Course (ICDC) is on the calendar. You can register your interest now for this fantastic program to be held later this year, most likely in Queensland.
