We’re excited to share with you a new chapter benefit – a modern website hosting service that you can personalize with your specific information and resources.
We’ve contracted with KWSM, a premier digital marketing agency, to work with you to personalize your template. KWSM will also provide regular maintenance to the website and minor changes as needed.
Websites are so important for any group – it’s the first place that most people go to learn about you! The website template we’ve developed in conjunction with KWSM is modern, clean and easy to use. It will help you expand your online outreach to new members and communities within your region.
Based on our survey of chapter presidents earlier this year, we know that you’re excited to jump in and use this new feature. Before you get started, here are a few things you should know:
- You’ll need to continue paying for your website domain. Those costs won’t change.
- The International Code Council is paying for the template creation and maintenance as well as the master hosting account. We will also pay for half the maintenance costs for each chapter website. You will be responsible for the other half – $50 per month (annual cost of $600) and any additional work you need done above and beyond the main template.
- You will still need to have someone assigned to update your website once it’s created with new events, jobs and blog posts.
