Do we need a Council Website?
We often get asked if KofC Councils really need a website.
We might be biased, but we definitely believe every Council needs a strong presence on the web. A website helps share your message, communicate with members and the community, and is an excellent recruitment tool.
Communication is one of the most difficult, yet most important aspects of successfully managing your Council. A well designed website can simplify communication with your members, your parish, and the community at large. Grassroots Hosting’s KofC Hosting Platform allows your council to post news, events, and awards online with only a few simple steps. Further, your members’ area gives members access to your Council’s contact list, important members only announcements, Council meeting minutes, and more.
Online payments make it easy to collect member dues, even when members are away for the winter, or living in a different state. You can also attract a wider audience to your dinners, breakfasts, and other events by offering tickets online with instant payments.
Perhaps the most important reason to have a quality Council website is Recruitment. Your website is the tool most likely to attract new and younger members to your Council. Show them what your council does, who you are, and what you need. Then give them the ability to contact a membership committee member. Our Platform is designed to do this out of the box!
