Clubhouse Visitors' Guide
Welcome to the new and improved Clubhouse, with 50 percent less frustration finding what you’re looking for. (We’re hoping it’s actually higher, but we don’t want to overpromise.)
There’s a lot here, and Clubhouse site mirrors the Sierra Club, so it’s complex and multi-layered, but we’ve organized it in such a way so there are multiple ways to find what you’re looking for. Here are six ways to find what you're looking for:
This is the easiest way, if you know what you’re looking for. All the documents in Clubhouse are listed alphabetically by title, and you can get to the A-Z menu from every page in Clubhouse – it's in the upper left corner under the search box.
The only caveat is that the documents/pages we haven’t moved in yet aren’t in the list. They will be.
2. Tabs & Submenus
You can also access about 50 categories of resources with the colored tabs across the top of every page. As you scroll your mouse across each tap, you can see the subsections that are within that section, and go directly to them. This option is also available from wherever you are in Clubhouse.
We’ve improved the search function in several ways. One is that you can choose whether to search in the section you’re in or in all of clubhouse.
Second is that all pages are “tagged” with one or more key words so you’re more likely to find what you’re looking for when you enter a search term.
Designed especially for volunteers new to a leader position, but useful for veterans as well, this section is designed as a “side-door” to clubhouse, with a list of resources most likely to be useful for such a position, plus, in many cases, a friendly “docent,” like Cal French below, to help guide you. (Note to veteran leaders: We could use more docents. We’d like to have one or more for each position. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sometimes you can’t find something because you don’t know it exists. That’s the idea behind the Clubhouse Updates. Approximately a dozen staff and volunteers author these updates, which are both about new features available on Clubhouse, as well as news about what’s happening in the Club.
These updates are segregated by category so the outings news shows up on the Outings home page, but not the Talking Points home page. All are aggregated on the Clubhouse home page or, once you’re in the Clubhouse updated blog, you can click on any specific category or all categories. Click on any link in any "What's New" box to get there.
If none of the above works for you, contact us and let us know what you’re seeking. Our operators are standing by. (Not really, but we'll try to get back to you quickly.)
Many pages have additional contact information in the lower left column.
