Participant Information
This meeting is open to all BCMC members but be warned it will mostly be a highly technical discussion. 
Proposed Agenda (created by Paul):
  1. discuss the division of workload for website maintenance and development
    • a) those that will focus on fixing and maintaining the site: Paul and Jeff
    • b) those that will focus on adding or revamping features: Francis, Bill, Alan and Geoff
    • c) those that will focus on improving the look and layout: *** volunteer needed

  2. discuss website management issues and current tasks, including: 
    • a) fixing known feature problems. 
    • b) documenting how webmasters maintain the current site.
    • c) adding more documentation for how members use the site.
    • d) completing unfinished features, e.g. participants "rating"

  3. discuss and plan for future website development, including:
    • a) agreeing on and prioritizing the addition of new features... 
      • automating "repeat" volunteer tasks such as monthly reports. 
      • simplifying or streamlining volunteer and member data entry tasks.
        • revamping online payment to separate Journal purchase. 
      • adding a simple version of Werner's partner list to the website.
    • b)  agreeing on and prioritizing visual/content changes to pages/emails ...
      • add a rotating seasonal banner to the "visitor" homepage
      • improve the wording and layout of site generated notifications
    • c) discuss hiring contractors to work on the more technically difficult issues
      • proposal to contract a (local?) PHP programmer
      • proposal to contract a (local?) web designer
