I enjoyed a wonderful, stimulating weekend at the Iowa Knights of Columbus State Organizational Meeting this past weekend in Urbandale, Iowa, just outside of Des Moines. One of the many important topics discussed was communication. Brother John McGee headed up a great session on communication.
As has come up many times with me personally, the topic of the IowaKofC.org web platform came up, and several people (as usual) expressed dissatisfaction with the ability to find the information they need on this web platform. I understand their perspective. When I started using this web platform in January of 2015, I needed to consult with Marty Stratton (http://iowakofc.org/profile/martystratton or http://iowakofc.org/profile/MartyStratton211), webmaster, several times to come up to speed; I needed training, and I got it, very personally and very ably, by Marty. And I've become very comfortable with IowaKofC.org and now know how to navigate the website with ease. Now, Marty can't do this individualized training for every individual Knight or Council across Iowa, so I suggest that IowaKofC.org website training be conducted at State Organizational Meetings for District Deputies and District Wardens such that they will become comfortable helping their Councils develop and maintain Profile Pages (websites) here on IowaKofC.org. This kind of training is essential. Before throwing out this web platform, which is actually very powerful but has some complexity associated with it, I strongly urge the State Council to consider this kind of training, training that will increase the quantity and quality of communication among the members of the Iowa Knights of Columbus.
