“Good leaders ask great questions that inspire others to dream more, think more, learn more, do more, and become more.” – John C. Maxwell
Good leaders empower their teams by asking for input. People feel more valued when asked their opinions. Questions are also away to connect with people and build deeper relationships.
I recently attended a website information session put on by REM web solutions. The following are tips about improving your website.
First thing, first: Content. Figure out what information you’re going to put on your site. Do your Research. Look at what other Kin clubs and service clubs have on their websites. Look at what Kin Canada and your district site promote. Make sure you’ll have the time to update content that requires it. TIP: Don’t waste time and space duplicating content that’s on KinCanada.ca. You can set up your pages to link to ours. We update our “Kin History,” “HREF & Bursaries info,” “About Us,” and member resources regularly.
Why create a social media presence:
- Build brand awareness – tell your community what Kin is about
- Establish your club and educate your audience
- Connect with donors, community, potential members, and other Kin clubs
- Promote events and drive donations
How to create a social media presence:
- Take a few minutes and make a social media plan – channel, content ideas, post frequency
- You don’t need to be everywhere – pick 1 or 2 channels that make sense. Facebook and Twitter are probably the best for club promotion. It’s better to do 1 well than 6 sporadically.
Age and Generation makes a difference when communicating. Especially when it comes to communication methods, work attitudes and feedback expectations. Check out this post for some things to remember when communicating cross-generationally.
Canadians seek different volunteer experiences throughout their lifespans as their circumstances and priorities change. Traditionally, volunteering has been a feel-good way to give back to the community; but now, it has also become a means for young people to gain skills for the labour market. A lot of Canadian high school students need 30-40 volunteer hours as a requirement to graduate. Having students help with your Kin events is a win for both you and them.
Currently, our most active discussion topic is Grandfathering the K-40. The status of these affiliate clubs is a little confusing; so from the office newbie, here are the highlights of K-40 and K-ette.
