This is a huge area – some thoughts to add in to the mix of ideas.
Welcoming WG makes sure that new rebels get the info and “vibe” they need to have the motivation to stick around and also find their ways into preferred XR roles. Worse case is when a Rebel signs up and gets no contact except State wide newsletter if this his available] .
New Sign up Rebels
Welcoming tasks include:
-following up Rebels after T and T,
-following up rebels who reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
setting up automated emails for new sign ups
working with new and existing LGs to enhance LG "ownership of postcodes " because only rebels who live in postcodes connected to a LG in AN can get access to LG emails -. This is huge part of welcoming.
supporting LGs to send out regular newsletter emails and social media posts for their local local rebels.
sharing Welcoming ideas and resources with other states / territories
Who does what;
- Much of the above is best done by LGs who have the local knowledge.
- Currently, there are NOT ENOUGH people in the welcoming crew to do this welcoming without help from LGs.
Recruiting to WGs
Above – AND
- Talking with WGs to identify roles needed.
- Working with WGs to ensure that referred rebels are on boarded effectively – unfortunately this doesn’t always happen when WGs are so overloaded already.
This crew meets 1 X week
Providing a support crew to manage zoombookings, Talks, Training and Events publicity, effective use of Action Network, Rebel Ringing, enhance interconnection of Web WG with other XR systems
System Support crew identifies gaps in XR infrastructure to support successful recruitment, welcoming, on boarding and retention of Rebels.
Once a gap is identified the System Support crew looks at who we can work with to get things working better. Of course , at present, the need is much bigger than the capacity to put solutions in place. Let’s reverse that. A good example is the establishment of , and support of the Web WG that is doing such a great job at helping the website to be more able to respond to XR needs.
