[Working Groups] IT Call – Feb. 18, 2014

The IT Working Group met to discuss broad issues related to the Portal architecture and how components like the proposed member directory, blog, and calendar would integrate into the current structure. We determined that in terms of desired plugins (directory, calendar), ease of use, and ease of setup/maintenance, we would initially test WordPress. The preliminary site should be ready by mid march.
