Departments of the Veterans of Foreign Wars' VFW WebCOM Network
is comprised of close to 10,000 pre-built, established hosted-sites for each of the 54 state and international Departments, their Districts and all 8,500 VFW Posts. Each department now has an integrated internal and external communications system at their disposal for consideration of universal deployment in support of existing and planned communication protocols.
Effective today we are extending an open invitation for all Posts and Districts to claim their VFW WebCOM Network site. If your Post already has a web presence this would be a great way to expand it. If your Post does not have a web presence this is a no cost way for you to establish one and start sharing with the world what your Post does in the community and Organization.
The Network has not been formally recognized by the National level of the organization at this time but is being aggressively rolled out through the nine VFW Departments of North Carolina, Virginia, Missouri, New Hampshire,Alabama, South Dakota, West Virginia, Wisconsin
Over 5 years in the making and built with the oversight and to the specifications of VFW Department leadership and membership, its objectives are to foster:
* More efficient organizational communication to your members and potential members.
* More efficient organizational communication to your communities.
* More efficient organizational communication to your legislators.
* Generate revenue and resources for the organization.
In support of the Network, we have added Department toolbars
, a video-sharing platform
, instant WebCHAT
, a Membership Forum
and pre-built 31,000 VFW Department-specific Officer e-mail accounts
which are transferable to the next person filling the position. E-commerce storefronts for each post, online calendars and much more are in the works.Except for the aforementioned Departmental Networks
the service will be offered to Posts and Districts without possibility of revenue generation until such time as the Network is recognized by National or your respective Department.
If your Post or District is within a Departmental Partners Network contact your Dept BlogMaster. If it is not please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will be happy to answer any questions and get you started.
