Letter from a Rotarian

Expressing the heart and soul of your Rotary Club is I believe what every club tries to achieve when they design a new website and the extent to which the Rotary Club of Southbank has been able to take the current Rotary DCS platform "out of the box" and populate it with all the best news and events of our club and district has been nothing short of exceptional.
For years, I have always thought of our club as an innovative club at the forefront of Rotary websites in Australia. But combine my own experience with the ease of use and capability of the system currently being offered; the opportunity to communicate who and what we are was not only a breeze, but extremely powerful in its reach.
Rotary DCS has allowed me with "practically" no hand holding, no back and forth emails, no huge wishlists, etc,. to populate our content, apply SEO principles (Search Engine Optimisation), create events and bookings, create multiple categories of blogs, individually customise the home page banner & menu, select from multiple webpage themes, create a newsletter with templates that already exist and more.
Sure the beginner will take more time to get their head around the system, learn the way the system works and most importantly tailor the system to their community and their needs.
And that is where I'll be there to support the early adopters to bring their sites to the fore and help build a partnership where Rotarians can celebrate not only what brings us all together as Rotarians, but what makes each and every Rotarian and each every club an individual force for change in their community.
And behind all that are the team at iVvy who will continue to enhance the system with the improvements that will take the system from exceptional to world changing.
