e-CABL Redesign Project Underway

Team: Jacque Doyle, Melissa Selph, Janene Wandersee and Kathleen Carlson, with Cynthia Porter and Bryan Nugent, as ex officio members

Charge (from February, 2010 minutes): to investigate methods for improving communication within CABL, including the website and listserv, and make recommendations to the CABL leadership

  1. Current situation:
    1. CABL has a website and a listserv
      1. Website (http://www.samaritan.edu/cabl/) managed by member webmasters who provide copy; only Frank Wallace at Good Sam can edit and post to it (many thanks to Frank)
        1. Sometimes copy is not posted in timely manner
        2. Sometimes copy is lost or falls off; need to monitor regularly
    2. Listserv (66 subscribers, see below)  is based out of UA and has four list owners:  Currently 2 are from U of A, plus the CABL treasurer and the president-elect/program planner:
      1. Owner= jlr@ahsl.arizona.edu (Jeanette Ryan)  (Jeanette won‘t mind leaving, but it is good to have a Tucson, rep)
      2. Owner= linda.feck@remudaranch.com (Linda Feck-Treasurer)
      3. Owner= jddoyle@email.arizona.edu (Jacque Doyle-Webmaster and UA)
      4. Owner= bryan.nugent@bannerhealth.com (Bryan Nugent-VP)

Email address can be used only by members: cabl@listserv.arizona.edu

Occasional problems with mailings occur, probably caused by list configuration (see below) at UA and/or mail system used by sender. JDD has been working on this; need to ascertain whether it is better now than earlier. It is difficult to talk to the experts at UA (http://listserv.arizona.edu/ as all is done via chat or email.

  1. Assumption #1: We want to improve the timeliness and effectiveness of both tools
  2. Assumption #2:  We may be able to afford to spend some $$ on  website design and/or hosting ; team must develop budget proposal
  3. Step 1 is to survey members to see what their thoughts, needs, and challenges are; the team is drafting survey questions now
  4. Concurrently we are working to identify free social networking (or other) alternatives, advantages and disadvantages:
    1. Blog
    2. Wiki
    3. Other?
    4. Advantages of going to a blog or wiki
      1. We will own it and can keep it updated more easily and quickly
      2. We can encourage individual and group participation
      3. 3. We need to draft an operating manual and style guide
      4. We can distribute the workload among: editor(s), editorial team, member writers
      5. We can learn from others (MLGSCA, MLA, other chapters and sections, etc.)
      6. Other?
      7. Disadvantages of using social networking solutions:
        1. Difficulty for some members to access either, unless domain name is changed?
        2. Disinterest on the part of members in increasing their engagement/participation?
        3. Continued need for member volunteers to act in leadership capacity? And to take on new technology, acquire new skills?
        4. Other?
        5. Next steps
          1. Confirm assumptions in items II and III, above
          2. With the support of CABL leaders, we will continue with items IV and V above
          3. Depending on the survey results, we will develop an implementation plan, timeline, operating manual, job descriptions, and budget proposal, ( item III above, as called for, by [insert agreed-upon date]
