Club News

The following is a list of news articles, educationals and how to's which will be written over the coming weeks to act as an archive of information, and deliver updates of the running of the union.

  1. Communication strategy: establishing a content input funnel, content quality control and content distribution methods to reach ODs, and enable engagement.
  2. Brand Overview: What is our brand message - personal, global, friendship, support, giving back - a succinct repeatable brand message that reflects the values of ODs to ODs.
  3. Where can ODs help: the ODU essentially operates on ODs volunteering their efforts. What small effort contributions can ODs make to assist within their time allowance
  4. Linkedin: Why it's so good for building engagement and creating valuable career connections and how we use it for the ODU.
  5. Sharing News: How to share news, what kind of OD news are we after from around the world, how much do we need
  6. Connecting with ODs and ODU - Connection Methods: How ODs should stay connected and use the OD Community. What Connectors should encourage (be registered, have a profile pic, Linkedin profile and groups, social media channels, WhatsApp groups, clubs etc.)
  7. OD Office updates: Currently, an OD Office update report (fortnightly) is sent to the ODC. This will be published in this group. We also have an online Calendar or ODU Events, School Events, Mitre use and ODU Meetings
