Margaret Riel and Linnea Rademaker from the Web Committee met on March 24 at 1:00pm

We reviewed the changes that were made to the tech help section of the website by Linnea and other small changes that Margaret made to prepare for the conference.  We discussed the traffic to the site and ways to make the experience more effective for members.  It was a working meeting as we both worked on the site throughout the meeting.  

The major task was to put the survey developed by  the Infrastructure group on the website in a way that invited participation and shortened the time it would take to complete it.  After some discussion, we decided to try it as a google form as we are using forms and spreadsheets as the way to build some level of interactivity into the website.  We created a sample and then agreed that we would share it with the infrastructure group to see if this was consistent with their vision.  After a few revisions, this survey has been added to the site and will soon be announced both in email and through announcements on the site. 

We found this working meeting a very effective way to both talk about and work on the website.
