The Guild is a NFP run by a committee of volunteers and the goal with the new site is to support those efforts by adding efficiencies to some processes as well as becoming a new source of revenue as well as laying the foundation for future enhancements.
We took the process of volunteer signup online, now if people are interested in getting involved they can go to the site, see what shows are coming up and volunteer in whatever fields interest them.
With the new site we have also increased the Guild’s offering to it’s advertisers and sponsors. On top of purchasing advertising in the show programs we now have tiers of sponsorship through the website.
The site is built with an industry standard enterprise content management system that empowers the Guild to take control of the site, and building on this solid foundation also gives us a stable platform to add new features in the future.
