IS THIS AN Interim or annual REPORT? __Interim _X_Annual

LIST SIGNIFICANT ACTIVITIES THE COMMITTEE HAS DONE SINCE LAST REPORT:

Web Committee

  • We hosted an online election for CALA's general election. We will be hosting the online election for Northeast Chapter in June.
  • We are working on upgrading backbone of the CALA website from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6. (a development site has already in place)
  • We
    are working with the CALA Membership Management System Task Force on
    implementation of a full-featured membership management system.
    (CiviCRM is already installed on the development site).  As of this
    writing, we have completed loading of membership data into CiviCRM, and
    are working on configuring CiviCRM to meet our special needs and
    workflows.

Webmaster

  • Updated CALA webpages as requested.
  • Set up a website for the Daidai project and provide technical support as needed.
  • Job posting
    • Created
      17 paid advertisements on the CALA website under CALA Library Job Line,
      with a gross revenue of $2624 generated for CALA.

Listserv administrator

  • Maintained and moderated the CALA listserv.
  • Maintained special listserv for the current Board members (calaboard@cala-web.org)

LIST COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS, IF ANY, TO THE BOARD:

  • We
    would like to upgrade the current web hosting plan to one that provides
    more system resources (memory and CPU allocations).  Currently we are
    on a shared hosting plan that is free because of CALA's non-profit
    status.  If approved by the Board, there will be a cost for the
    upgraded plan, depending on dedicated memory we desire.  The next level
    will be $15/month.
