Suggestions about "Committees of the ASA" webpage

Post by sbheg » Wed Aug 04, 2004 8:10 pm

In looking for a committee to join I have found small descriptions of what a committee may be about if there are members. When there are no members there is no description of the committee. A description of the expected responsibilities would be nice in deciding if you as a volunteer have the correct skill set.

I would like to discuss how we can improve this to assist in recruting more volunteers for the activities.

TIA

I'll double check the page codes and the database. I think Sanduners put descriptions in all of them so maybe it's my stellar programming talent that is preventing it from displaying...

If the descs are not in there then we'll get that fixed too.

Thanks Greg!

I was thinking that a help wanted type application could be useful in getting people to sign up.

What do you think?

I was wondering if there is an Intranet that the ASA is using internally to manage the work involved in running such a large organization.

I have been using a tool for Client Project management that makes it easy to organize team members onto a project. It has a Team project side and then it has a Client/public side to the project that only published information is viewed by client/public. The software could be easily customized to manage Committees and their projects.

Is this a useful tool that the ASA could use?

We have a Committee Action Log that sees some use. It functions off the ASA web site.

I was looking for the Committee Action Log, where is that on the site? Is there flag for members on a committee and then it shows up on a menu?

The action log is only available to members of committees. Once you're in a committee you can see action log items that deal with that committee.

You automatically get access to the Action Log when you are added to a committee's member list. It's at
http://www.asasand.com/actionlog

If you are a member of multiple committees then you get a drop down list to select from.

If you have overdue action items you get an alert on the ASA homepage every time you visit.

If you are assigned an action item you get emailed.

Some Committees also have private BBS forums to communicate. SSSS, Calendar, Endowment and a few others come to mind.

The BOD has a big area for on-line voting and document management.

OK I updated the commitee view page, so it shows the descriptions even when there are no members. I also added a email link so that you can volunteer for that committee!

Thank you Greg for correcting this and for the explanations on the Action logs.

Sanduners had another suggestion, that we have the volunteer link on every committee. So I changed that. I also tweaked the wording a little for empty committees.

Also, the email subject will be auto-magically filled in with "I want to volunteer for the <<<>>> committee" and sent to the volunteers@ email address.
