We’d like to think of our WPA NECA App as the Swiss Army knife for Member Services. It has essentially replaced former stand alone objects like directories, calendars, memos, jurisdictional maps, newsletters, photo albums, & video hubs. The APP is in essence a warehouse encapsulating all of those items in one location with the ability for “real time” / up to the minute dissemination of information.
The newly designed interactive jurisdictional map is currently one of my favorite features. The map, built through a Google platform, outlines Local 5, Local 56, Local 106, & Local 712 jurisdictions. Why is this helpful? First, it give you the ability to search an address and immediately know which jurisdiction it falls into. The star located within the jurisdiction notes the Local Union Hall or Headquarters along with contact information for that Local.
If you’re planning on attending NECA NOW ’15 or The NECA National Convention in October, the App is an invaluable resource for those events. We are able to include daily agenda breakdowns, chapter activities, and information that we feel is not only necessary but helpful to make your trip more enjoyable and efficient. Our NECA NOW ’15 section will be released on the APP Monday, March 2nd. This will allow users over a month to analyze the information & features before getting to Miami.
I can proudly say, we are the first NECA chapter to create an APP of this caliber for its membership. With the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve gathered from our members, as well as other chapters & NECA personnel, I’m quite certain many others are sure to follow our lead.
If you haven’t downloaded it yet, please do so. I promise it will be to your benefit. And it also comes with a great price tag, FREE.
