TECHNOLOGY PLAN IMPLEMENTATION UPDATE
Donnice Cochenour, Project Manager

The NASIG technology plan implementation is progressing.  Data from our membership database has been loaded into the new database on the ArcStone site and Lisa Blackwell and I are in the process of testing its latest iteration.  The membership database is the underpinning for much of the functionality of the new site including online voting, which is our next milestone.  A draft online ballot has been set up by ArcStone and by the time you read this, the NASIG Executive Board, along with members of the Database & Directory Committee and the Nominations & Elections Committee, will have completed testing of this function with the expectation that voting will be open to all active members on February 25.

Two website designs, one for the public (non-members) and another for members, have been approved by the board and ArcStone is in the process of setting up the infrastructure to support these designs.  All of the committee chairs have been involved in identifying the “behind the scenes” working spaces on the existing web site used for their committee activities.  These needs will be incorporated into the new website design.

Pictures from the various locations of past conferences will provide color and visual interest on the new site.  Members of the Electronic Communications Committee have been busy contacting all of the campus and city offices from past conferences asking for suitable digital images.  In addition to providing a colorful website, these images will bring back many fond memories for lots of us.

The next step in the process is developing the online registration for the annual conference.
