Chairman Notes


Jim Board,

Chairman

Welcome to the new Mid-Atlantic Chapter website!  I hope you find it informative and entertaining so that you visit it often.  Beyond a newer, modern appearance, the foundation of our new website represents a major leap forward in technology.  Like many unsung technical improvements, this platform change should be virtually invisible to visitors and registered members.

The old MAC website was first launched in 2000 and was built with "state of the art" software for the time.  Manipulating data on it required a webmaster to possess a considerable amount of programming skills and IT knowledge.  That complexity proved to be a limiting factor for our needs today.  This new site is built on a software platform that did not exist back in 2000 and is much easier to update and edit.  Managing content now does not require the ability to write computer code or navigate complex applications.  

The website is not the only thing that has changed.  Gary Wilkerson, who has served as our web manager since 2006 has retired his keyboard along with the launching of this new site.  Behind the scenes, Gary has performed an invaluable service for our chapter, managing the site for 13 years.  His untiring contributions are greatly appreciated.  Job well done Gary -- Thank you!   

Ed Szeliga, our Treasurer, volunteered to update the MAC's website and jumped in to help.  Almost singlehandedly, Ed came up with a plan and learned to operate the new program.  Ed was able to migrate content from the old website and layout both old and new information on our new website.  In addition to being our Treasurer, Ed has assumed the additional role of Interim Web Manager.  Ed insisted on including the word "interim" in his new job title because the plan is for Ed to hand-off primary website manager duties to a yet-to-be identified MAC volunteer within 6 months.  Ed will serve as an alternate following the transition and assist as required.  To be blunt, we need a MAC member to step up and volunteer to serve as the primary web manager.  Ed has no formal (and very little informal) IT training, and he says if he can do it anyone can.  If you are interested please contact Ed directly (edszeliga@comcast.net or phone 703-862-8101).  

We hope you take some time to explore our new site and we look forward to your feedback.

Thanks again to Gary and Ed.  The volunteer spirit is strong in MAC.  Be sure to visit this site often, especially this "Chairman Notes" page for information on upcoming events and other chapter related information.
