Technology Karen Oeding reported that the jobs page and 2019 PO Salary Schedule are the most popular and there have been many visiting the Events page. She's curious about why we aren’t using the Members only section looking for a way to grow interaction Karen is happy to do that. Karen spoke about the work of the board and supporting each other. Membership renewal cycle is still January to December and the department invoices has been really positive. Still looking for feedback on the website or ideas that could make the website more useful.
