Communications Task Force Meeting
November 12, 2014
Date of meeting: November 12, 2014
Minutes by Steve Sandberg
Present: Jennifer Gahnstrom, Deb Ramage, Al Hildenbrand, Steve Sandberg
Looked at features of new website. New website has already been launched. Steve had hoped that launch could be delayed so that additional content and suggestions on structure could be incorporated, but the others present felt there were many benefits to immediate launch as a work in progress ,such as; it’s such a vast improvement, why wait, and; anything placed on the old site from this point would need to be transferred over, thereby duplicating efforts, and; many of the new features can only be tested once it is live ,etc. So, congratulations Deb and congratulations committee! It is really a great improvement and a great accomplishment.
We gave Deb feedback on a few things such as condensing the Walker Community UMC section to possibly use less space and necessitate less scrolling. Whether to assign photos in a different way rather than the random way they appear. Making sure that photos of children that are used are used with consent of parents. Whether committee minutes, like directory info, be placed in the section accessible only to members?
So as far as website goes the committee will continue to encourage content and feedback. Steve will do what he can to add content in the children’s education section, by working with Jera, Walter, and parents.
Next meeting was not decided.
