Technology Services for Nonprofits:
Foundations for Establishing a Tribal Coalition Web Presence
Download Presentation Files | View Webinar
This webinar is designed to be an instructional step-by-step on how to leverage free web services provided by companies who assist non-profits such as tribal coalitions addressing domestic and sexual assault. During this session we will preview the services gained through domain registration, and walk through the necessary steps to obtaining domain and hosting services from DreamHost. Participants will walk away with knowledge on how to lower their program’s cost burden to near zero by transitioning their hosting services for website, email, and other online services to DreamHost hosting. This session is the first in a three-part series that will assist tribal coalitions in building a strong foundation for leveraging their organization’s web presence to communicate, educate, and provide services to their members and member organizations. An online presence can provide that link for those seeking services or information about the organization. It can be further expanded to providing valuable resources to members and member programs without requiring additional staffing to respond to informational requests.

Website Development using a Content Management System (CMS)
This webinar will address the advantages for tribal coalitions of using the CMS WordPress over a typical static web site. This session will not only provide an overview of the components that define why a CMS is different from a static website, but also illustrate ways to leverage those differences to better deliver your organization’s message. This will be a hands-on training session that will allow tribal coalition participants the opportunity to interactively create content on a “sandboxed” web site powered by WordPress. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the features provided through the use of WordPress for their web site, in addition to hands-on training in creating and publishing their content to a live site. This session is part two of a three part series on building a strong foundation for leveraging the web presence of tribal coalitions in educating and providing services.
Implementing Social Network Services

This webinar will provide tribal coalition participants an overview of social networking services. We all know that social network services work well in connecting us with those we have made through real life connections. Social networking has been front and center for the last 5-7 years in many of our personal interactions online, but how do you migrate this concept over to a tribal coalition without affecting productivity and still yield results?
This webinar will provide tribal coalition participants:
1. an overview of various social networking services including Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Youtube, and AIO (All-in-One) services for sharing;
2. what to consider when choosing social network services for a tribal coalition; and,
3. various ways to integrate the usage of social networking services.
The webinar will review the difference between integrating conversations from social networks to a tribal coalition web site, and providing ways for visitors to the web site to share the content with their respective social networks. This session is part three of a three part series on building a strong foundation for leveraging the web presence of tribal coalitions in educating, training and providing information regarding domestic and sexual assault to the public and membership.
