Chapter Websites Taking Off
August 9, 2011 – In June, we officially launched the long-awaited Chapter Website program, which will help ensure that every chapter has an online presence. And we are already seeing some fantastic websites from chapters that didn’t even have a website before.
Take Chapter 1364 from Junction City, Kansas, for example. During one of the workshops conducted by EAA Online Community Manager Hal Bryan during AirVenture 2011, representatives from Chapter 1364 showed what they’d done with their site so far, and offered some tips and guidance for the rest of the group.
Not only is Chapter 1364’s website really coming together, it is also one of the chapters that didn’t have a website at all before the Chapter Website program came along. It’s the perfect example of the program’s purpose – going from no website to an easy-to-use, eye-catching, informative website with little to no experience or expertise.
By now your webmaster (or president) has received an e-mail with directions on how to access and customize your chapter’s website. If you have not received this notice, please let us know by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The websites are provided free of charge (including design and hosting) thanks to the Peter Burgher Chapter Development Fund and are supported through Webs.com.
The sites feature:
- Easy-to-use tools (no experience required)
- Professional design
- Customized content for individual EAA chapters
View a recent archived webinar on the Chapter Website program that will walk through the basic features of the sites and provide some valuable tips to help you start customizing your site. EAA webinars are made possible thanks to the support of Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co.
