Branches and social media
We encourage branches and chapters to explore social media as a means of communicating with both members and potential members at a local level. The various channels can be used to promote branch activities, network with other members and discuss locally relevant topics.
We have therefore developed a set of guidelines (PDF 1MB) for branches to explain how and why we are using social media, and how branches and chapters can get involved.
Beyond third party media
This area is developing and we continuously monitor new channels to see if they could work for us.
