The Indispensible Blog

Mar 7

In an interconnected world of websites, Facebook and smartphones, in many ways, a lodge website becomes THE key point of linkage for a modern lodge.  It's a natural evolution, born of the same impulse that would have members of a previous generation scan the lodge newsletter each month, or read the busy bulletin board whenever they walked into the lodge hall.  Conversely, when a lodge is 'off the grid,' without a website, and more alarmingly, without an e-mail contact address, they position themselves as essentially dorment to the new generation.  They. Don't. Exist. 

For sure, it's not fair.  I'd wager that some of these off-the-net lodges are active, warm and welcoming groups.  I am the first in line to commend the wisdom of grandparents to the next generations, and am convinced that in missing knowing them, youth will miss out on so much.  But the fact is, the perception of the younger generations is fleeting, and will crowd out disconnected lodges in favor of those who are connected.  There are simply too many connected lodges now to bother with the others, especially in larger, multi-lodge cities.

So, what is a lodge to do about it?

The first thing that must be done is to ensure you have an e-mail address available on your grand lodge website and in all printed documents.  This can be a traveling address, that goes with the office, or it can be the address of a trusted correspondent, who would enjoy answering inquiries on behalf of the lodge.  E-mail is less formal, so it is no longer necessary that the volunteer be the actual lodge secretary or master.  What is important is that this person regularly track their e-mail, and that they happily correspond with any inquiries.

Next, a simple website can be the work of an afternoon, where one or two brothers (and their sons, neighbors or grandsons) help them create a basic webpage with contact information, a calendar, photos, address and introduction letter.  Anything else can be added over time, such as history, links of interest, volunteer opportunities, etc.  If you keep this page updated with an hour of work each month, you'll have a place where members and guest alike can go to check meeting times, menus, and phone numbers.  Your local internet provider, or hosts like GoDaddy.com would charge around $30 annually for a simple website.  Shop around because pricing is competitive.

This website, www.ChurchillLodge.org, is essentially the work of one not-so-technical volunteer, and costs about $120 a year to host.  We bought our domain name through GoDaddy.com, then hosted it through a local 'open source' web developer.  'Open source' is a type of software which is non-commercial or cooperative, as opposed to proprietary (and expensive) brand-name software.  Ours happens to use DNN or DotNetNuke as a platform - the structures and text blocks of our website - while another good open source provider is Joomla.  Our $120 a year pays for the software that this website is made with, the hosting (where it sits on the internet), and the website name. Content, graphics and photos are all generated by the members.

Since starting this Churchill project in 2009, we've taken the website about as far as we can with our own labor.  Recently, a group of the brethren have all chipped in for a one-time project to pay for a more professional look to the website.  You will soon be able to see a before-and-after page, showing how we used to look.  I'd describe the content as solid but the look as entirely too text-driven, without enough white space or graphics.  --My marketing background showing through.  The resulting graphical treatment will take our thematic elements and conjure up a much more effective Churchill look.  I'm excited to see the results, sometime in March of 2011.  Cost?  About $300 for the new skin (website ~art) and about $300 for some additional photo and PayPal functionality.  Some of you may have noticed that we also host a website for our neighborhood Shrine club, TheChairmen.org, a group that is also paying $400 toward their own website redesign.  All told, we chipped in $1,000 toward the project.  These are all one-time fees, which some of us opted to pay, once we knew the lodge was 'a keeper.'

Oh, did I mention that we think that PayPal integration will help us sell ties and pins, and more easily bill for dues and dinner fees?  There are a whole lot of other benefits that will come from this update, and just in time too.  We have some charitable and high-visibility events coming up that will bring in a lot more visitors. 

You see, a modern lodge's website really IS a working metaphor of its brick and mortar.  In our case, as a traveling lodge with no permanent home, this website IS in many ways, our building, our connection point, and the first place the brothers check when they begin to plan for lodge night.

I'll be commenting on this project as we move forward, and will log some of our suggestions on the discussion forms.  If your lodge is interested in 'borrowing' some of our themes or content, please call or write.  We would be thrilled to see another few Churchill Lodges spring up around the US.  Or, another Ben Franklin lodge (like in Wisconsin).  Or a George Washington lodge.  Or one honoring Spinoza, Descartes, John Locke, etc., etc.

Check back with us from time to time, to see the new website design.

Re: Our Lodge Website

I'd like to thank the following brothers who have contributed to our website fund: Jim Martin, Ted Martz, Michael Ordorff, Gerry Brandt, Tracy Eberly, Bernie Fautch, Tom Jackson, Jason Berger, Doug Beach, Mike Bell, Paul Hardt, Nick Schlossmacher, Matt Vegdahl and Adrian Skytland. They believed in the vision, and enabled us to do this without dipping into lodge funds. Thank you, brothers.

By Tom Jackson on   3/14/2011 9:19 AM

Re: Our Lodge Website

News from Monday, 3-14-11 - Things are getting exciting now. The artists have all our photos, and a first draft of the new skin should be available to the group of twelve reviewers shortly. Everyone is anxious to see it. Brad and Justin are working on their project, with the help of Darrell Pharmer. Thanks to both Dan Akins and John Gann, our photo gallery will be vastly improved as soon as the new site is rolled out. I should also mention that thus far, $820 is in hand already toward this project, with the rest of the donations en route. Thank you, brothers!

By Tom Jackson on   3/14/2011 9:20 AM

Re: Our Lodge Website

I was pleased to be able to show a static image of the new website at our monthly lodge meeting on 3-25-11. At least 15 of the brethren got to see this late-stage draft of the new skin, or graphic design. I think you will all be pleased. We're cutting way back on the text used on the front page, which will make things much more clear. I'll even find a way to make these blog postings less text-intensive. Affinigent is almost done with the skin, and will follow with integration onto the website, addition of our PayPal functionality, the image rotator for the front page and the photo gallery. The artist, Jamie, meanwhile will begin on the Chairmen Shrine unit site, which we host. --It's got a separate URL at www.theChairmen.org, but that is just a redirect. With this architecture we can both share modules and functions, cutting costs for both groups. Eh! Pretty smart! The theme for the Chairmen unit site will be Sinatra/ Vegas/ Rat Pack. I look forward to seeing his first draft. All for now.

Re: Our Lodge Website

It's an exciting day. We're deploying the new web skin this morning, and thus far, it looks very good. Comments welcome.

By Tom Jackson on   4/7/2011 9:43 AM

Re: Our Lodge Website

Everything seems to work fine on the new website. As happens with any major update, all the links get broken, and have to be fixed on the fly. So far, Affinigent, our designer, and Jordy Stradtman, at j_stradtman@comcast.net, our in-state Mason and site engineer, have been wonderful to work with. Jordy can help you design YOUR website, and Affinigent can help with the art, if you want to spiff it up a bit. -They call their design team "Spiffy", and are linked at the bottom right of our home page. The most recent update was to add the automatic form to the Masons in Motion page, which allows on-the-fly pledging in a matter of seconds. The system automatically collects all pledges onto a form, which Charities will then use to contact lodges and individuals who choose to give. Shane Wendt and I are working on the concept for the Chairmen potion of this website (sharing costs with our local Shrine unit is a cost-savings measure), which is going to be rolled out sometime in May. We'll eventually add a small fez symbol on our Churchill pages at the lower right, allowing you to get to the Shrine portion of the website, and a top hat or Churchill mug as a link from there, back here. Also, look for a couple of cigar bands on the lower left of Churchill's desktop, once we are all done with the updates to the site. Back end updates include MUCH work on PayPal, for our automated billing and invoicing. Ted Martz, Jim Martin and Jason Berger have done a great job on the Atlantic Brotherhood Summit structures, as we get closer to the event. Members now look here for updates, which will soon include rough estimates of reservations and capacity. We're filling up the seats for these events...
