Although considered to be social clubs, organizations such as the Knights of Columbus and Elks play pivotal roles in their communities. Many are involved in offering volunteer services and planning fundraising events to better the community they are a part of. As a leader for one of these types of clubs, you already know the challenge of staying in touch with your members to encourage participation. Let DialMyCalls assist you by providing a web-based notification service that can keep you connected with your entire organization.
Elk Clubs, Masons, Rotary Clubs, and the Knights of Columbus are all organizations that have served communities for decades. As a result some of the resources that you are using may be outdated. If your club is still reliant on a phone tree to relay its messages, then you are not effectively communicating.
To incorporate a modern communication system like DialMyCalls into your social organization is simple and comes without any software or hardware to install. Just open your account and begin loading the contact information for your members. When the time comes that you need to let everyone know that your meeting plans have changed, you log in to your account, create a message, select contacts, and click send. Within minutes DialMyCalls has helped you accomplish what would have taken a phone tree hours.
You can use the communication tools that DialMyCalls provides for dozens of different scenarios. Increase your attendance by sending out reminder messages before a meeting. Use an SMS text message that simply states the date and time of an upcoming meeting and the importance of member participation. With contact information already stored in your account, you can quickly reach all of your members in minutes.
A large part of your responsibilities as a leader revolves around planning events for your group. You can make this easier on yourself by using DialMyCalls to ask for volunteers in planning and setting up these events. Ask for direct contact from members who are available to help using the Push-To-Talk feature.
Push-To-Talk allows you to send a message asking for a response back from anyone who is available. They are prompted to push a number on their telephone keypad which directs them right back to you or to any number that you assign. This allows for direct communication with your members when you need specific help with a task.
Another tool to further assist in you in your event planning is the DialMyCalls telephone polling option. Here you are able to ask questions in your message and invite the members to answer back using their phone’s keypad. Ask about the types of outings or events they would want to see from the group or what kind of fundraisers would garner the most interest. You can track the results in your account’s message report. The answers given are displayed easily so you can see exactly what your group’s expectations are.
It is not easy to sustain the long-running traditions that groups like yours depend on in this modern world. When you incorporate an innovative communication system into your organization, you are able to keep those traditions going by encouraging member participation.
