From your Webmaster

 As we begin the third year of the web site layout we will be updating some items in hopes of making it more user friendly.  Please be patient with us while we undertake this transition.  After the first of the year, give us any feed back as to the new layout.  Email me at:  masonslady04@aol.com


The program introduced last January offering you the opportunity to update your sites that the Webmaster has created for you.  You may also create your own site using the template provided to you by Grand Chapter which operates under the Joomla program.  For more information on this contact the webmaster at: 
masonslady04@aol.com.  The webmaster will continue to do the websites as in the past.  The above are just options for you.


We still we be asking that every Chapter, District, Region or any other group who has a website linked on the Grand Chapter site to sign and submit a registration form.  This is just for record keeping so we know about all the sites and have a current contact for the site incase of any problems that may arise.  We are asking that each site, no matter who creates it or maintaines it submits the form.   The forms may be found on the Creating a Website under the News and Information tab on the Home page of the Grand Chapter site.



We are also asking that each site contain a "modification date" as well as a "email contact" for the site.

 

From time to time I will post information here to help you, your Chapter, District and Region in creating your own web site.  We want as many of you to have a platform to tell your story.    To this end please download the Web Site Guidelines and other information to assist you.  Do not hesitate to email me with any questions you may have and I will try to assist you.  Be sure to put your Chapter, District or Region in the subject line of the email.  My email is: masonslady04@aol.com   

 

If you have any suggestions for the site, please email them to me.  Remember I cannot put anything on the site without the OK from the Worthy Grand Matron.  We never post phone numbers or addresses on the site without written permission from the person who’s information we are posting, and this is VERY rare.  Email addresses are always welcome. 

 

Visit the site often and keep up on what is happening with Ohio Grand Chapter, OES.

PUBLIC RELATIONS:  WHAT IS IT?

 

Public Relations in the Order of the Eastern Star isnot just “publicity” and it is not just directed at “the general public.”  It is important that our chapters and our members work to develop and maintain a favorable image for our organization among our key PUBLICS:

 

  1. Members -- active and inactive

Communicate regularly through newsletters, e-mail and phone calls.

  1. Potential Members

Tell your neighbors, family and friends about  our activities and charities. Show your pride and invite them to be a part of our great organization.

  1. Other members of the Masonic Family

(Masons, Rainbows, Job’s Daughters, DeMolay, Scottish Rite, York Rite, Shrine). Let them know about our activities; find ways to work together.

  1. General Public

Tell others about our important events and good works.
