Currently we in the process of developing the new Clackamas Sunrise Rotary Wordpress website.
One of the essential reasons for this change is to give the leadership and Committee Chairs of our club the ability to more effectively communicate with BOTH our members and our Clackamas Sunrise Community. Our website is our club’s brand. It could be a great foundation to facilitate the connection, engagement and amplification.
With this in mind our NEW content development strategy is planned to be more of a TEAM effort.
Club leadership will be given access to the site administration area to upload content and photos on their areas of interest, upcoming events and reporting of past events they are passionately involved in. The WordPress interface is basically a simple word processing application very similar to Microsoft Word. WordPress has been developed with non-technical users in mind. It is intuitive so people of any age, with any level of technical knowledge can use it.
There are short and engaging training videos in the WordPress Admin area (bottom left column) to help guide you. From time to time as scheduling permits we are planning to present short demonstrations during Friday meetings. Of course Jim is always available to TARL personally or in a Google Hangout online and give you one-on-one assistance if you wish.
Our club’s current domain address http://ncsunriserotary.org has been now redirected to our new domain http://clackamassunriserotary.org. Our initial beginnings may be modest but there is great potential for future communication development and expansion as we learn to work together in launching this new site.
Starting this week we will begin setting up your WordPress Administration access beginning with the club officers and committee chairs. Basicly it is planned that your username will YOUR email and a generic password that will be sent to you via email. This will give you a chance to familiarize yourself with the admin area and check out some of the excellent training videos if you like.
If you have any questions or need help accessing the (http://clackamassunriserotary.org/wp-admin) admin page let me know…eMail me or we can talk on the phone or TARTL in person via Google Talk.
