Keeping everyone on the same page across all the committees that make up your organization can feel like a full-time job. Committee members have other responsibilities and distractions constantly requiring their attention. This makes it even more difficult to keep projects moving and to meet the objectives of your organization.
The good news is that Social HubSite is built specifically to overcome the challenges of managing the committees that make up your organization. Unlike “mainstream collaboration platforms” which cause distractions from a lot of unnecessary features, Social HubSite keeps your committee members engaged, accountable and organized.
It all starts with the Updates page. It is one page where member across all your committees can catch up on all activity related to their involvement in your organization. The Updates page will show everything from documents that have been uploaded and edited, assigned project tasks, upcoming committee meetings or just status updates from other committee members. The goal here is to show what’s relevant to members so they can get what they need and keep moving.
On the Updates page, Social HubSite provides committee members with a simple way to post announcements, project updates or reminders to the committees they belong to. When updates are posted they will respect the notification frequency (instant, daily or weekly notification) for each group they belong to. You’ll no longer have to worry about the hassle of sending separate emails and trying to keep up with all your conversations. Social HubSite becomes your central hub for all conversations.
Your time is valuable. With Social HubSite, you no longer need to search your email to find that document, message or meeting invite. Everything you need from all your committees can be found quickly and easily from a powerful search tool. This becomes an incredible time saver as you add more documents, conversations, projects, meetings and members into your Social HubSite.
Kickstarting your Social HubSite doesn’t get any easier. You can either paste a list of emails or choose contacts from an address book, say your LinkedIn contacts. From there, simply customize a welcome message, choose a group to invite your new members to and your done. Members will receive an invite link where they can register for your Social HubSite. Within just a few minutes you can start to get things done with members from all your committees and groups, be more productive, get organized and feel better about the way you work. It will be like a breath of fresh air.
Groups inside of your Social HubSite will enable you to organize communication, documents, projects, meetings and a number of other things that improve productivity and increase the chances of successful projects and better overall communication. You can set each group to have its own unique privacy setting. Make a group completely hidden (perfect for a Board Members group). Make a group Private allowing other members to request access. Make a group Public to allow everyone to join. Be default, we’ve setup an All Members group so you can hit the ground running. Groups become your life line to staying organized as you grow.
An essential part to keeping all committee members on the same page is opening up direct lines of communication with each other. Social HubSite gives your members an easy way to find each other, send private messages and organize their discussions with each other, all in one place. Email will no longer be a sole source of communication between members. You will avoid the “I didn’t get that…” or “What’s John’s email again?” comments freeing you up to focus on the mission of your organization. Your committee members are going to love it.
Managing documents for multiple committees across multiple document storage platforms (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.), and even email, can spell disaster. Even if documents are stored there, how are members being notified with changes to your documents? Who’s managing permissions to the documents?
Social HubSite removes this anxiety by created a central “hub” for all your documents and gives you and your committee members collaborative capabilities. You can upload your own documents, import documents from popular document storage services such as Dropbox for Google Drive, or simply build your own documents with other members all from one place, your Social HubSite.
Committee members are notified when documents are added and edited. They can comment and add their 2 cents to each document that they have permissions to view and edit. Document authors also have 100% control of document permissions. Keep a document to yourself. Share a document with committee members. Add documents to folders. Create your own taxonomy of documents so you can easily find them later. You won’t want to use any other document system to stay organized and get things done with your committees.
Edit diagrams, text documents and more with other committee members. This is a game changer for committee-based organizations. No longer do you need to pass around documents worrying about which version is the right one. Documents on Social HubSite also keep version history so nobody misses a beat.
There is no lack of project management tools out there. The problem for most committee-based organizations is that these platforms have too many features that actually keep members from using it. Social HubSite cuts out the unnecessary aspects of managing committee projects and focuses on aspects that committee members will actually use. This means better organization and getting more done.
You can even re-assign a project to another group at any time. This supports continuity in workflow and ultimately keeps all of your committees focused on doing what’s important to drive your organization forward.
One of the biggest challenges with committee-based organizations is holding members accountable and keeping them engaged. The good news is that Social HubSite can handle this for you, automatically. Member Check-in’s ask a question once per day or week (whichever you choose) to all members and prompts them to enter their response on the Updates page. Based on the notification frequency of your groups, these responses will then notify all appropriate committee members.
Member Check-in’s are 100% automated so you don’t have to worry about nagging committee members for updates. It also helps avoid unnecessary meetings freeing up more time to focus on what’s important. Something we all can appreciate.
Keeping track of meetings across all of your committees can give you a migraine. Avoid that migraine by simply posting meetings inside your Social HubSite. Meetings will be automatically shared with members and added to their list of meetings visible from every page of the website. You will have one place that keeps track of all your committee meetings.
Once you sign up, you’ll be taken to your Social HubSite where you’ll be greeted with a step-by-step tour of the system. The tour includes video clips along the way so there is no guessing on what to do next. Need a quick refresher on a feature?

Social HubSite is focused 100% on delivering a collaborative experience that committee members will use. Mainstream collaboration solutions usually support one or two aspects around how committees work, but require committee members to decipher the features. We’ve found this to be the reason why nonprofits struggle to get committee members to respond and participate in these tools.
Social HubSite is continuing to evolved into a platform “designed” to get committee members to respond and participate. That’s our only focus.
