 New Business

Web Master-Mary Carlson

The NWTFC web site is having some serious difficulties as the software being used is older and no longer supported.  The problems are not only affecting us but also Trek Tracks.  Greg Hollister has gone to heroic measures to correct some of the issues but we must begin to explore future alternatives.  Further Mary has been able to make sure that we still have some functionality.  It was recommended and approved that our Web Master could spend up to $500.00 for consulting services to provide us some direction.

Approval by the General Membership to support the Web Master was moved and seconded.
