The purpose for this site is to provide a Web page to the Association’s members and to communicate to the community of upcoming events and to tourists. Our research brought us to the Chamber Dashboard plugin. We customized the design to function with the features in this plugin including the ability for new members to join, current members to edit their own Web page, add events to the calendar, sponsorship payments and to pay yearly membership dues.
Scrolling through the screen samples the following customizations were used:
- Interactive slider that features photos of upcoming events and photos of the area
- Home page that features upcoming events, event sponsors, and what to find in the area
- Dropdown menus were used to minimize menu subjects
- Plugin allowed us to show members’ business’s location on a Google Maps.
- Plugin allowed us to set up several ways to sort the businesses
- Right column programmed to feature announcements, live FaceBook feed and 3 upcoming events.
