The last section of your Startup Checklist
is entitled Roll Out. This is when you get the rest of your group involved with using your new website.
Schedule time at a group meeting to make a presentation about the website.
If it is possible to have a video projection system and web connection, display your site and demonstrate how it works.
If not, bring handouts that provide the basics on how to get started.
Be sure to point out:
- How to get to your new site.
- How to log on.
- How to change your password.
- How to update your contact information.
- How to view the calendar.
- How to sign up for events.
- How to view your account balance and transaction history.
Now you need to be sure you have a plan for
keeping all of the information on your site up to date.
Meet with other leaders and group members to review roles and responsibilities.
Consider dividing tasks between members with specific roles. You might, for instance, have one user assigned to update the calendar, while another is responsible for uploading photos.
Make sure that everyone knows how to perform their tasks and how to consult the user guide.
It is particularly important that your treasurer understands how to use the online accounting system.
Above all, be sure to spread the load.
Managing your group can be easy if everyone does their part!
