Introduction

Over the past few weeks, I have been fortunate to hear what a selection of Leaders are seeking from a new District site.

Overall, the site needs to work beyond what people generally think of a website. Typically they see a website as a generic digital billboard to advertise and promote.

The District website to go beyond this basic objective (and over time) to become the hub of the district – featuring news, events, Scout Group promotion, training management etc.

What I heard site needs to be…

  • Easy to use
  • Easy to update
  • Easy to manage
  • Easy to communicate
  • Stunning and professional design
  • Fund-raising opportunities
  • Information is easily ‘Synced’ / pushed to people / can be subscribed to
  • Using Open Source technologies to ensure information can be accessed by anyone by any device

How we will achieve this…

  • Phase 1 – Core
  • Phase 2 – Community
  • Phase 3 – Communication
  • Phase 4 – Continuity

This document is designed to briefly outline Phase 1 of this transition. If you have any questions, or would like to help the new District Media Team, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Yours in Scouting,
Leigh Brown
Assistant District Commissioner
