LISTSERV ACTIVITIES

The new listserv software has been set up and all of the committee memberships have been reviewed.  ECC will be adding information to the website about all of the committee listservs.  The old listserv addresses will be retired soon.  The manual will be updated.

Nancy Beals set up a Google Group for the committee to experiment with to determine whether this might be an alternative to the listservs.

WEBSITE ACTIVITIES
ECC committee assisted Donnice Cochenour with the content migration and site testing after the migration to the ArcStone site.

In July, Anna sent detailed notes about the inadequacies of the survey software that came with the ArcStone website to Samson.  Samson’s response was that they would have to build everything from scratch and that they cannot add features to their survey software without rewriting the entire system.  They suggested NASIG utilize third party survey tools instead.
