Editing Your Chapter Webpage
This training demonstrates how group leaders can edit their chapter’s public facing web page on our main website using an editing interface that’s on CCL Community.
How To Edit Your Page
To edit the content of your chapter page, log in to CCL Community. Once signed in, go to the “My Tools” section on the left side of your Dashboard. In you’re tools, you’ll have access to a the ‘Chapter Page Edit Tool.' On that tool page there are instructions and links to support videos.
In order to use the Chapter CCL Website Page Editor Tool make sure that your group leader has added you to the "Chapter Page Editor" role on your group's roster for you to be able to access this tool. After this step has been completed, if you aren't able to access this tool, be sure to log out and then back in to your Community profile to allow this permission to sync via clicking on the upper right "Log Out" box on your page as highlighted below:
If you still have challenges accessing your chapter page edit tool, send an email to CCL's Membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more support.
Accessing the Chapter Webpage
Anyone can go to www.citizensclimatelobby.org, and find the page for their chapter. This unique chapter page can be found by clicking the “About” tab then in the drop down, then choosing ‘Chapters.’ Once on the Chapters page, scroll down and find your chapter and click on the corresponding chapter name.
Most of them have some generic information about CCL and at the bottom it has your chapter's email address. This web page can be a really great marketing tool once you customize it for your chapter! As a group leader, you’ll have access to edit the text and pictures on this page go customize it for your group. Some information you can include are other nearby cities so people feel welcome, where and when your chapter meets, the names of group leaders so people know who they’re emailing, and information about any events you have coming up.
You’ll also see that it has a custom URL with your chapter name, so you can distribute this on any business cards or recruiting materials you make for your area! Then, if you keep it updated, anyone who goes to that URL will have automatic access to all of the information they need to get involved with your chapter.
Note: If you don’t see your chapter’s name in the list, this probably means that you don’t have an official group yet, and you can work with your state and regional coordinators to decide when it will be right for you to put an official group up on the website.
