Our District site package starts you off with basic content, an image repository of Masonic logos, and email subscription capability. These sites are fully mobile-responsive and optimized for search engines with plenty of available features at no extra cost. You may point your existing domain to your new site, or we may register or manage for you and handle it all. The site come set up with an interactive district map of lodges and basic contact form, and we can embed your Google Calendar(s) into it as well. Typical content includes a list of lodges and links (or pages with more detailed information), a current Grand officer and local leadership list, important upcoming event information, regional projects, and messages from the DGM, AGL, or others (which you can give individual limited access if you wish). We also set up links to your Grand Body, local Valley, local Shrine, Facebook Page, etc., which you can change or add to at any time. There is little training required beyond basic word processing and being shown the ropes, but we are available to train and support your lodge’s webmaster or web committee as necessary at NO EXTRA COST.

Caveat In New York, Bro. Ken Stuczynski has provided setup and hosting for districts at no cost if they lacked the necessary knowledge and resources as part of his contribution to the Communications Committe of his Grand Lodge. These are less advanced template sites with simplified mobile versions rather than modern responsive design, employed by a system developed specifically for minimal effort in cloning and rollout. The packages here have many of the same features, but are for districts who can afford a more robust and customized solution.
