ACRM

SOCIAL MEDIA SET-UP PROCESS 

for COMMUNITY GROUPS

An ACRM Community group may set-up a social media channels for their group by following these instructions & guidelines.

 

REQUIREMENTS

  • Community group must have at least one designated member assigned with the “Admin” role.
    • This role may be the Communications Officer or a Social Media Officer, or other officer role.
      • There may be more than one group member admin.
    • Admin is tasked with keeping up with the page / channel regularly.
      • "Regularly" is defined as weekly at a minimum.
        • ***Ideally the admin would post & monitor 3x week***
      • Group members must be enthusiastic about the channel AND committed to keep up required maintenance.
      • Enthusiasm from majority of group members
      • This kind of attention  and “grooming” from the group members is critical to fertilizing the young channel and allowing for strong growth — to foster engagements and to try to gain traction and followers.

EXPECTATIONS

  • Monitoring / posting by group members / group admin ("Communication Chairs"): at least once a week.
  • ACRM Staff will monitor and post only occasionally.
  • The success of the channel relies on its admins and the group members to frequent the channels and post to them, like & share.
  • Inactive Page / channel WARNING:
    • Community Groups should not start /or open channel without commitment nor without ACRM Staff prior approval.
    • Pages / channels that go stale, can be most attributed to lack of member involvement / oversight & postings.
    • Stale pages / channels do not promote the lively personality and professionalism that ACRM stands for.
    • Inactive pages / channels may be “closed down” at the discretion of ACRM staff.

    • Facebook Page: where most art at. Global reach.

ACRM acronym usage guidelines:

Abbreviations to be avoided whenever possible. When abbreviations are unavoidable — the spelled out version should be in the same view / somewhere nearby.

Rationale: ACRM has been faulted for having too many abbreviations making it hard for new-comers, so for that reason ACRM should try and present NON-abbreviations to all outward-facing communications -- or when unavoidable -- to at least spell-out the name somewhere nearby whenever an abbreviation is unavoidable
