Lodge Communications Plan

This is how Wagion Lodge #6 gets information out to its members.

  • The primary method of communication with general lodge membership is the T-Bird Times.
  • The council’s “Smoke Signals” newsletter is used to communicate our events with the entire council.
  • The website, www.wagion.org, is operated as a way for members to obtain information any time.
  • A “Wagion Lodge #6” Facebook page is operated to educate the public on good things Wagion Lodge 6 is doing.
  • A closed Wagion Facebook group is operated for lodge members to communicate with each other and get less formal information on what’s going on in the lodge.
  • Lodge officers also make use of an officers-only Facebook group for communicating with each other.
  • The LEC frequently uses e-mail as a means of communicating with each other.
  •  A dedicated mailing list was created for sending e-mail out to the entire LEC at once.
  • LodgeMaster is implemented as a means of sending out e-mails to the general lodge membership to alert them to important details.
  • Officers frequently use Skype and Google+ as ways of having remote meetings with each other.
  • Members of the LEC often collaboratively work on and share documents via Google Drive.
  • The Promotions team often produces videos promoting events and then publishes those documents via Facebook and Youtube.
  • The Promotions team also produces a free public “Where to Go Camping Guide” that is available at our council office, or download off wagion.org.
  • Members with questions are always welcome to contact our Council Service Center during normal business hours and speak to the Lodge Staff Adviser.
  • At every lodge weekend, training cells on a variety of subjects are presented: Website Technology, Facebook etiquette, How to Write an Article, Meet the Officer, “Ask Eric Bush,” etc.
