Family reunion websites facilitate effective family communication and strengthen extended family relationships before, during and after your family gathering.
As family reunion planners, we all share the same problems:
Lucky for you, I have the answer! It's called: FAMILY REUNION WEBSITES.
Let me introduce you to one of my favorite companies - MyEvent.com. They can help you quickly and easily set up your very own custom ad-free website where you can:
But that's not even the best part.
The best part is that your website will become a communication hub.
Effective family communication, especially with extended family, is difficult, at best. I don't know about you, but I can barely keep current mailing addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers for members of my immediate family, let alone for my extended family.
And yet, if we want more people to attend our family reunions, we must do the first and most obvious task of extending an actual invitation. Don't rely on your adult brothers and sisters to pass information along to their own adult children and families.
Here, let me say that again -
Because it doesn't work.
They will forget - maybe even on purpose. And, besides, information gets lost as it passes through various people. (Haven't we all played the popular telephone game where the ending message sounds nothing like the original?)
More relatives will participate in the reunion if you communicate with them directly. And your own family website makes direct communication with the entire family easy.
A website can become THE place to keep track of all aspects of YOUR reunion - a central gathering spot; a place to share information, solicit feedback, and make assignments.
And it can extend way beyond the actual reunion planning itself. Use your website as a communication hub to build extended family relationships before, during and after the family gathering.
I promise you, it will make a difference.
