There is no better way of keeping your members informed about up and coming events, than a regularly up-dated web site. Most societies have a committee member that has the technical expertise to set up a web site. You will have to negotiate with your department the possibility of linking your web site with the departmental web site.
Creating your Web Page
There are a variety of packages available that you can use to create your web pages including:
This is the part of the setting up process that can require quite a lot of your time.
Hosting your Web Page
Student chemical societies' web sites can be hosted on the university server and you can usually upload the pages yourself. Although, in some cases, you may need to get a member of staff to do this on your behalf.
Once the web site is on the server it should be easy for you to get access to it and do any amendments or updates that are needed. You should find that this is a relatively quick process.
Dealing with Technical Difficulties
If you do have some technical difficulties, there are various people that should be able to help you:
- The member of academic staff who is responsible for updating the departmental web site
- The university computer department
- Other societies at your university
- Other chemical societies in the SCS Network
- Information on the web
- Royal Society of Chemistry
