Nonprofit Internet Toolkit/Help Center

Anne reported on the work of a group including Jan and Tsui to update the web site, including the content produced during the Vista grant. Anne distributed a several page printout of proposed additions/changes.

Positive feedback from board. Anne noted that this is not so much creating new material as better organizing what we already have available.

Sheila will lead a group to work on organization of help/search for questions that come up frequently. Pretty much everyone will help.

Committee reports

Web team: Steve noted that we have a SimpleSite website that’s been accumulating linkspam and mail to the designated admin has been bouncing. Under existing policies, Steve is trying to find a new admin, but there’s been no response. The site will be archived until someone in the group takes responsibility for it.


Tsui noted a recent $200 donation
