I did a thing I haven’t told you about yet, but I can tell you about it now because it’s live. It’s live and it’s out there and, like, real people can see it, and you know? It’s pretty cool.
At the first rally I went to at the courthouse, maybe five or six weeks ago, I met a woman who was taking email addresses for the local chapter of NOW. They had just started up, didn’t even have their officers selected, and they were looking for members. I went to the monthly meeting four weeks ago, and before I knew it, I had volunteered to be their tech person.
In the last month, I have worked with the president of the chapter (the woman who was taking email addresses – more on her some other time) to create and manage the official website of the South Willamette Valley chapter of the National Organization for Women.
I am the web master, I am a member of the PR team, and I am a member of the Budget and Finance committee (because, like Mom, I sometimes have a hard time saying no to things).
The website is live as of today (www.swvnow.org), the March monthly meeting is tomorrow night (Monday), and the plan is to tell everyone about it then even though it still has a couple of placeholders. Don’t tell me if you hate it, do tell me if something is wrong with it, and no, I’m not fishing for compliments. In fact, let’s just stop talking about it.
