Introduction to our Club Web Site Presentation
Our Club Web Site Administrator and Director of Club Communications Cornell will demonstrate a number of features and benefits of our Club Web Site as time allows. Members of the Club Web Site Committee suggest members review a document entitled Introduction to our Club Web Site before our next meeting.   The document is also available under the Downloads section (see the >Menu Bar >About Us >Downlaods) and was also forwarded to every member per group e-mail (a very powerful feature of our web site).
PAG Cornell will demonstrate life interaction with our web site and the presentation will be supplemented with a Power Point Presentation (PPP) entitled A Primer to Our Web Site he prepared for the meeting and another PPP on how to Sign on to the Private Section of our website.    A few short videos will be included as well.   Members of the web site committee will be encouraged to participate in the presentation. These PPPs and videos can be viewed by members at any  time.
