    Can people find your Meeting on Google? Would what they find give an accurate and holistic picture of your community? Need ideas, help, or tips about how to make your Meeting’s website the best resource it can be? Post your questions in this thread and I or other tech-savvy Friends can do our best to answer.

    Yes. Yes. A presence through pym or its own website seems to be welcoming. I have passed a lovely meeting with no presence and would not attend because the semiotics of web presence to me means come.

    Hi Linda,

    All PYM monthly and quarterly meetings have a presence on the PYM website in our Meeting Directory! See our searchable directory at http://www.pym.org/meetings

    The online directory includes information about each meeting, worship times, First Day School times, map, contacts and a link to each meeting’s website (most meetings do have their own website).

    I meant to say their own website. some meetings are very active and seem welcoming like west grove in western quarter. I know all meetings have some representation through PYM. I apologize for not being clear.

    We at Lehigh Valley Monthly Meeting are preparing to venture out of our website with concurrent publication to a Facebook group. We have created the group and are about to set up Squarespace (our web host) to publish directly to “Lehigh Valley Friends (Quakers)”.

    We have a majority of Members and Attenders who do use Facebook regularly. We like the idea of easy push notifications from groups to its members. We also have a significant number of people who will not use Facebook. Therefore, we recognize we need to select one place as the go-to repository of information – lehighvalleyquakers.org – and Facebook as a place that is more social in nature.

    I don’t believe we have any Members or Attenders who do not have access to or who do not use electronic resources. We do still have people who prefer paper communications, and we can certainly afford to keep sending those folks newsletters.

    I believe our stewardship communications go out on paper with stamps as well.
