What are Microsites and How Can I Create one for my Chapter?
- Microsites are community websites that are customizable and act as a mini website, rather than a cookie-cutter community page.
- Microsites can have multiple pages and links, and unique layout, design, and navigation menus.
- A microsite must be managed by an administrator. Any chapter looking to create a microsite must identify an administrator to be trained by SIOR staff. This administrator will be responsible for all content edit and updates to the site.
- To request a microsite and/or training, contact SIOR Communications Director Alexis Fermanis at email@example.com
