Ever try to hire a graphic designer to develop a website? Many Rotary clubs have looked at it, but few have the budget to pay for one.
We get it. We’re all volunteers working in the service. All the money we raise goes to service projects in our backyard and around the world. While we are rich in giving back, we often don’t have enough left over to do much more than pay current club operating expenses, let alone take on a big, expensive initiative like building a website from scratch.
That’s why Rotary has partnered with ClubRunner to enable any club to create a quality site that will draw the respect of current and prospective members. For the price of what you’re probably paying now for hosting, you can build a new site in a matter of moments.
Best of all, there’s really no need to hire a graphic designer or expensive web developer to build it. If you can type an email, you can build a website with this service.
There are other benefits, too. The ClubRunner offers a robust membership management and communication system for clubs and districts in multiple languages with features such as attendance reporting, event and volunteer management, directory builder, email and newsletter broadcast services, and social media integration. For clubs that need more, add on features – including barcode scanner, online payment, and others can improve some of your current administrative tasks.
The bottom line is this. There is no reason why any Rotary club can’t have a robust, quality, slick looking site that will help boot your public image as well as membership retention and recruiting efforts. Programs and plans exist to make it easy so get started today. And if you ever run into a snag, give your Public Image Coordinator a call. We’re here to assist in any way possible and are glad to do so. It’s just one way we serve.
