The diverse social media platform Facebook has, in recent years, become a popular business channel for many organizations seeking to interact with their customers. As part of our 90th anniversary celebrations ICMIF has taken the opportunity to utilise the many features of Facebook to interact with our members further and we are delighted to announce the new ICMIF Facebook page.
The idea for the Facebook page came from discussions here at ICMIF on how to celebrate the milestone of reaching 90 years of providing service to our cooperative and mutual members around the globe. Initial milestones from ICMIF’s history have been added utilising the timeline facility to highlight significant achievements and events throughout the years With a timeline dating back to the founding of the original organisation by Joseph Lemaire, Director of La Prévoyance Sociale in 1922.
As part of the Federation’s commitment to encouraging member interaction and promoting best practice, ICMIF are fully embracing other social media delivery channels including a growing number of followers on Twitter. If you are not already doing so, please follow ICMIF: @ICMIF_Web. We have also recently launched a weekly e-newsletter and our ICMIF News Section on the web site is constantly updated with news from the sector and our members. If you would like to be added to the distribution list please add your email address via the ICMIF web site home page.
ICMIF openly encourages its members to ‘like’ the new Facebook page either through their business or personal accounts and we freely encourage you to post comments on the photos or events listed on the page. Furthermore, members may even be able to find themselves or colleagues in one of the many images! Moving forward, the page will be continually updated to include all the latest updates on ICMIF’s activities, news, videos and images from all of our events along with examples of best practice and thought leadership.
By interacting with the Facebook page and building our community of social media users within the membership ICMIF continues with our commitment to our vision ‘ A Global reach for local strength’.
