Website Committee Meeting 2017-May-20

The website committee had its quarterly meeting on 2017-May-20. 

In attendance were Chairperson Jim B, Jen R, and Scott M.

A discussion was held around the things that the website does today and how we can make these areas better.

The key areas are:

  1. Main website focused on SEO, supporting new members, and the public looking for identification and information
  2. Custom support for Meetings, Intergroups, and Regions - How do we collect and display this information?
  3. Ecommerce support for Literature, Medallions, etc.
  4. Members area for service committees to share and post information

We discussed website development guidelines and want to start to document the more specific needs for ACA WSO's website.

Anyone interested in helping make the website better, please contact webservant at adultchildren.org. And ask for a slack invitation where we can communicate easily
