WEB SITE HELP NEEDED
Those members that attended the SAGM heard that we
are currently reviewing proposals to develop a new RNYC
website and Social Media Interface. Ken Corbett has been
our Web Master for the last four years and has indicated
his desire to step down once a new site is in place.
We are seeking members who have some web experience or
interest, who would be interested initially in
selecting a web site vendor from the proposals received;
then assisting with the development and implementation
of the new site and finally providing ongoing support.
We would also welcome anyone with knowledge or interest
in any part of this process.
If you would like to assist the club in this area,
please contact Ken, Donna Marie, Tess or Jim and
indicate your interest and what you are willing to
assist with. The selection process will start
immediately in the New Year.
