toolbox Building a Home Online Helps a Chapter Shine y ou love the official SkillsUSA website. We know, because the hits just keep coming. But what about a site for your chapter? It’s a great publicity and recruit-ing tool, and — best of all — there are many free resources to help you build one. As a class, talk about how a website for your chapter should be organized. What information should be featured? What areas of your chapter would you most like to promote? Who will be responsible for writing content, taking pictures and maintaining the site? Next, see who offers free website creation and decide if one feels right for you. Weebly ( www.weebly.com ) offers a custom domain name and templates to build simple sites with cool features. Wix ( www.wix.com ), Blogger ( www.blogger.com ) and Wordpress ( www.wordpress.com ) are other great alternatives. Choose a tool and start building your site. You’ll be building your chapter’s strength and reputation in the process. • With public sentiment, nothing can fail. Without it, nothing can succeed. — A BrAhAm L incoLn Find the photo, win a prize No, the picture on the left isn’t abstract art. It’s actually a distorted part of another photo in this issue.
