2pm PT Attending: Linnea, Elena, Margaret, & Miguel
There was some confusion over the time as the message said 2pm but the calendar did not update before the invite was sent and it said 1pm. This caused some people to miss the meeting.
We agreed as a group to accept the new template with the horizontal menu. Margaret will begin the process of implementing this shift. We also agree on the audience filter and we are going to mock up the four pages. In this discussion Miguel suggest that we need a FAQ feature and he agree to write the questions and answers. We decided that this might be featured in the first two filters.
Design-- the use of arrows. We discussed where the information should go, on the arrows or before or after the arrows, or if we should use the arrows at all. After some discussion, Margaret is going to try a mock up of the front page with the arrows and we can see what we think. Linnea think that the arrows might point to buttons to click.

We will work on pages in the ARNA backup website.
We also agreed on the process for Membership
Hopefully that will work smoothly. One additional step that we might implement in the future is that Linnea sends a message to someone to welcome the person. We could all agree to do this on a rotating basis or a group of people could be assigned the role of ARNA greeters and Linnea would assign new person to one of these greeters.
