AFGE Department of Transportation Local 3313 recently unveiled its new website that includes a more innovative design and more useful information for members.

The Local under the direction of Local President Sheila Wilson, created a strategic marketing plan before enlisting the guidance of other members and eventually hiring website development team to create the new website. The website is easy to update and enables viewing on mobile devices. The Local’s main goal is to provide more content for members and prospective members and update the site on a weekly basis.

In addition to revamping its website, Local 3313 is also increasing its social media presence. “We live in a digital world and we know a lot of people find resourceful information on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.  Sometimes it’s an easier way to reach more members than through the website,” says Kanika Tolver, Local 3313 member and website team member.

Local 3313 plans to use its new website to engage more of its members and create a dialogue that will encourage members to become involved with union issues and activities.
