Membershp Issues 
    1. Membership listing on the two sites-- how to keep current

current solution of importing english page on the spanish site works but is not elegant. 

NEED to a solution to the member listing. Two ideas:

1. Get prophet to generate a report that could be posted on both sites and updates

2. Create a single spread and post the spreadsheet on both sides

Consistency on the website is need about membership rate. Both new and old rates

are shown.


To do: Linnea will follow up with Cathy (membership) and Iris (database).

     Possible solutions are prophet

     or a commom spreadhsheet linked to the site.

Need to check what members are asked to list-- make sure that information to share on the website is requested.

She will also check with Cathy about changing the membership page on stories so it shows the correct rates. 

Michael will contact Brett and see what it takes to update the membership map.

Margaret is going to change the structure on the Spanish side to match the English side, 

Miguel, Camilo and Constance will translate

New Graphics

Margaret will create a graphic for Join us in Spanish using this translation

join us = ¡únetenos!   

Linnea is going to try to create graphics as well

Margaret uses this site to buy graphics


Conference sites
