Default How to start - a non profit community group

Hello, welcome to Charters Towers community forums, Nth Qld, Australia.

The Charters Towers forums program is for a small part designed to provide the community with a place to network on and in an online social setting. We would like to offer a place to communicate online and social networking for adults and community groups.

-------

Non profit community groups or community organization:

For local Charters Towers non profit community groups, could we offer a place to display newsletters and announcements to do with ones group.

Community groups will have to contact the website administrator before hand. So the website administrator can setup a special user account with set privileges, and higher forum permissions to maintain and use ones account for the said non profit community group.

Please view below for required information to obtain a said non profit community group user account.
