This month's program gave attendees the opportunity to learn more about the issues involved in maintaining an organizational web presence. Panelists discussed the role of webmaster in federal, commercial, and academic institutions, addressing topics like team management, content management, standards/technologies, and site maintenance. Although strategies and setup differ by type of organization, all speakers agreed that the role of webmaster is more often a collaborative endeavor rather than the sole responsibility of one individual. Practical advice was provided on design, new technologies, and site updating/backup.

The evening also included a brief chapter business meeting. New chapter chair, Ed Sawyer thanked past chair, Marcia Zeng for her contributions to the chapter over the past year. The Treasurer's Report and results of the NORASIS programming survey were presented, and web committee issues were addressed.
