The board of directors meeting was called to discuss the IDGA website. An IDGA member who is a professional web designer by trade began creating, designing, hosting and updating the IDGA website in November 2020 at no charge to the organization. Feedback from the March 2022 IDGA membership meeting recognized how valuable the site was in 2021 with events and communication. Since Fall of 2021, this member and her family have ceased participation in IDGA, and she no longer donates her professional programming time and server hosting. Donated value of the development, design and hosting to date is $3200. Immediate needs to update the website include Youth Showmanship Series Info, Hoosier Classic # of Rings, Hoosier Classic t-shirts, Membership directory, and April, May and June IDGA events. The former member has offered to discount her hourly rate to complete these items estimated at 5 hours for $125. Additionally, web hosting on her server is $12.95 monthly. Rob suggested hiring a website specialist that is unrelated to the organization. One individual recommended is Deb Mackey. Mike made the motion that we pay the current developer through the Hoosier Classic (June,) and that Rob reach out to Deb Mackey to discuss a transition. Nikki seconded the motion. Motion passed.
Hoosier Classic t-shirts—David to email Brenda order forms and all necessary details for the web orders.
Nikki to send Brenda show dates for the Youth Showmanship series to add to the website.
