On October 5th at the annual meeting/dinner over the Montgomery weekend, I had the pleasure to announce that the newly designed United States Kerry Blue Terrier website went live on October 1st. This is one of the many accomplishments during Melanie’s time as President of our club.
I would like to thank the Communications team – Melanie Feldges, Carl Ashby, Janie MacBryde, Reita Nicholson and Julee Manahan for their countless hours of hard work and dedication that they put into getting this site organized, updated and live!
I would like to recognize Carol Kearney for her many years as our club’s webmaster. Carol was the prime mover in the creation of the original website. Carol and Bill put in countless hours adding content and making the website user friendly. We thank Carol and Bill for their efforts.
The USKBTC website is more than a website. It is a membership management system that the Communications Committee will be sharing with everyone in the near future. The membership management system will allow all members the ability to update their own contact information and will allow for more administrators of the data on the site.
We have added a link to the Historical Archives (being created by Bob and Barb Beuter) as well as an Events calendar. The new website is 90% of the way to completion. The site will be much easier to maintain and update. This will result in more frequent updates and new content being added on a regular basis. While we have worked to eliminate broken links, out of date content, and no longer relevant information there is more work to do. YOU are our proof readers and we have set up an email address for you to report issues. Simply send an email to email@example.com.
We are looking for content. If you come across an article or have written an article that you would like considered please send that to the same email address.
Take a look and navigate around the new website. I hope you like what you see. We welcome your comments and suggestions so send them to firstname.lastname@example.org .
