The Governance Committee has been very active over the last twelve months with it driving the appointment processes for the Secretariat and the CEO along with improving financial reporting and continuing development the WUP policy framework. We have also developed a number of key supporting strategies such as the Financial and Revenue Strategy and a Membership Strategy.
One of the key Strategic Directions identified is the need for us to improve our membership management, which requires the implementation of a comprehensive management system. After carefully considering the various packages available, we have resolved to adopt the iMIS20 membership database system. This system will significantly improve the service provided to members in such areas as events management, social media integration, communications, establishment of private communities, private discussion boards, employment boards etc. The system will facilitate overall improved member self-service including renewals process and member communications. Using this software, WUP will also be able to establish a new and much improved website. This initiative represents a major upgrade that will benefit us all.
