FAQs

How does annual membership work?
Membership runs for twelve months, from the first of the month after your payment has been received (eg. from 1st September to 31st August). You’ll receive a renewal invoice for the next year about one month before your renewal date.

Is membership for individuals or organisations?
Membership is obtained by organisations, rather than individual practitioners. The level of membership determines how many people from the organisation can join. For example, single membership entitles one staff member to join. Team-3 or Team-5 membership enables multiple staff members to join. If a staff member leaves or changes roles, membership can be transferred as needed.

What can I share with my team?
As intranets and digital workplaces are by definition hidden from public view, it is important to protect the confidentiality and privacy of members and their sites. The ethos of the Forum is to ‘take away the learnings but respect the confidentiality of the people and/or organisations sharing’. You are therefore welcome to share resources within your direct team or organisation, but not beyond. Screenshots remain the property of the organisation sharing.

How is my privacy protected?
As convenors of the Forum, Step Two will protect the privacy of members, and will never pass on details to any third party. Members must never share details with a third party without the express permission of the member.

Who can join online membership?
Online membership is targeted to those who can’t attend our in-person workshops (held at city centre locations in Brisbane, Melbourne, Auckland and Sydney). If you are at one of these locations full membership will be a better option.

Why is membership not open to consultants or vendors?
We are a vendor-neutral organisation and the community is based on business needs, not specific technology solutions.
