Excellent news from APLAC, and Australia Post, for Licensees in regard to ARA membership. Australia Post has done a group deal for Licensees, and paid membership for all Licensees.
As from the 1 March 2017 all Licensee will have full membership to the Australian Retailer Association. The Association communicates with members via email, and Licensees will need to provide an email address to receive these updates. However it is not mandatory, and Licensees will still be able to access the services regardless of not providing an email address.
ARA is an association that exclusively supports retailers in the Australian marketplace. ARA provides marketing advice and training, governance advice and many other vital services, and Australia Post recognises that this support for Licensees in the retail environment, is a great way to provide excellent and qualified retail support for Licensees in our challenging times, rather than our network support staff being expected to provide all the answers to our questions.
