Keeping the ship afloat

As Transition Sooke grows, it has more and more communications needs. Can you
lend a hand?
  • Website – Do you have any experience or want to learn how to post articles and photos on a very basic WordPress site?
  • Newsletter – We use Mailchimp for our monthly newsletter to over 410 subscribers. We need help seeking content from members, writing articles, and laying out the newsletter. We can teach you what we know!
  • Membership – Transition Sooke has almost 50 Active Members and we need to keep track of them.
  • Publicity — Help promote our online and in-person events. We have a few key people who could show you the ropes.
If you want more information or think you could help, contact Alan.
