Local, regional and national associations have plenty of missions and goals that your community strives to meet. One of those goals is expansion and growth—and having a professionally designed website that represents your association’s personality and mission is critical to giving your community an attractive public face. An eye-catching, professional website by Celect allows you to:
If your association is represented nationally, each of your local and regional chapters need to stay in touch. While they often operate independently from national headquarters, communication is important to keeping your association’s branding and message consistent when it’s presented online. Community networking with Celect also empowers you to reach individual members through direct communication.
Shared pages for local & regional chapter websites ensure your brand message stays consistent online.
Leverage donation outreach, engagement and networking info for all of your members.
Syndicate organization news at the national level down to local groups.
Communicate and plan online between local groups and the national office.
Communication is a fundamental part of driving growth within your association. You can’t fully manage how you stay in touch with your members by using Facebook or other social networks—but your own private social network with Celect becomes the main touchpoint for how members of your organization interact, plan, schedule, task, communicate, grow and build an identity for your association across the country.
Celect’s member management tools give you the opportunity to do exactly that. Each member creates his/her own profile and uses features like groups, forums, messages, events, newsfeeds and more to enhance communication and planning for recruitment, facility management, social planning—and anything else you can imagine. It also helps you encourage members to get involved.
Ways to use your private social network:
Sometimes, the budget for technical staff is stretched thin. With Celect, you don’t have to hire on programmers or developers; our content management system (CMS) gives you the ability to maintain and update your own association website without extensive tech expertise.
Everything you need to manage your own website in one cost-effective package.
Your members are rich in useful information for improving recruitment and driving the growth of your association. When your members create profiles through Celect, you have access to information that puts you at a huge advantage for the health of your association.
Celect's profile feature gives your members the ability to share information within your association's community that they might not want to share on a public network like Facebook—like phone numbers, alternate emails, street addresses, messenger accounts and more. While members have the ability to only share designated information, your site administrator has access to everything.
When you buy a website through Celect, you also get a payment portal that gives you a secure way to collect payments from members, alumni/alumnae and non-members alike. Our partnership with PCI-compliant credit card processing company Braintree helps you ensure that payments are processed as securely as possible.
