Over the past 18 months the POA have been working to improve social media content and member engagement.

As an organisation it is vital that we keep pace with changes in social media formats and members social media preferences.

We will shortly launch an online survey that should take around 6 minutes to complete.

We would request that members take the time and give us your feedback into your social media routines.

As part of the survey, we want to know the social media platforms that you choose to engage with, this will assist us to evaluate and shape our social media offerings against a fast-changing social media landscape. 

We are asking questions around platforms, times of engagements, methods of engagement.

In addition we have asked a few questions relating to your knowledge around your employers (public or private sector) social media policy’s.

This information is for internal POA consideration and will not be passed to employers.


You can find the POA Social Media survey here in the members area:


Thank you.


Yours sincerely
