We gather together on the lands of the traditional custodians, the Wurundjeri and Woi Wurrung people. We pay our respects to all of Melbourne’s First Peoples, to their ancestors and Elders, and to our shared future together.


Our last meeting was an introduction to the proposed Regionalisation pilot presented by PDG Peter Frueh and past ADG Casey Tan. The first step in the process is to seek clubs’ support to explore a new governance structure more aligned with clubs current and future needs.
Following the work of the Project Team since February 2019, the proposed Regionalisation pilot has been publicised via nine in RDU, the Networker social media or websites over the past two years or so. Clubs will be requested to vote for their support (or otherwise) to enable the Project Team to pursue alternatives for a new structure. Essentially the objective is to replace the existing Districts with a national entity and potentially for the setup of regional entities (possibly geographically based).
The trial will ‘experiment’ with different models with, if clubs’ trial approval is received, the optimum structure requiring clubs to vote for its adoption at the end of the 3-year trial. In the meantime, the existing structure will continue to exist in tandem. Club voting will open mid-September and close at the end of September. More information on the voting process to come.
For more information, see - see Voting Fact Sheet; an article by PDG Grant Hocking and a YouTube presentation:

Influence of celebrity endorsement/endorsers on consumer behaviour: A study of source credibility theory and consumer decisions through Instagram (the case of beauty products)
The purpose of this research is to explore Instagram user perceptions of celebrity versus micro-celebrity beauty product endorsements, and their influence on consumers' purchasing behaviours. The Source Credibility model was used in this study to identify themes when analysing user comments. The study included five celebrity and five micro-celebrity influencers as case studies. This study has implications for the theory and practice of social media marketing, influencer marketing, brand endorsement, and the understanding of Instagram user behaviour. Influencer -consumer engagement in the endorsement of brands is still very much limited. Authentic Engagement emerged from the research as the central theme and an important aspect of influencer marketing. Therefore, this study contributes to the body of knowledge by analysing user comments on beauty product endorsements in multiple case studies of USA celebrities and micro-celebrities. The contribution to the community lies in the fact that celebrities and micro-celebrities are in practice presented by high-profile social media marketing agencies in the influencer industry in which talent agents and managers, brands, marketing agents, and marketing event organisers are stakeholders. This research has demonstrated that micro-celebrity endorsements can potentially influence users' propensity to purchase beauty products as opposed to the influence of celebrities based on the Instagram analysis of the posts by followers of the selected influencers.
