Yes, the new website design is costing more than I or the board thought. It's not an excuse, but that is kind of the nature of these IT projects.

That said, one of the reasons we are doing this is so we can deliver more member benefits, something that has been an ongoing issue for us.

Mike-- you can call me offline and I can tell you what we're up to.

Mike, the web redo is not coming at the expense of the speaker program. We originally had a speaker slated for October who had to cancel. I forget who it was. But there was a speaker, so it's not a matter of cutting speakers to redo the website. It's just that in the face of this cancellation, I would rather save that money in light of recent expenditures. This in addition to the fact that I prefer the round table as opposed to a set topic. I think it would be fun.

As far as cost of the website redo, I do not recall the exact amount, nor would I prefer to post in general forums. I will however look into it and pm it to you.

Lastly, I agree with you about technology. However, the world is a web based, technology driven world. I don't like it. I am a five thumbed dinosaur, but the facts are the facts.

Speaking from a purely financial position, the "round table" talk is a much better plan. The web redesign is killing us financially, and that's with Rick negotiating for savings. The "round table" is free. Sam would he great, but would cost some healthy $$$ in airfare.

Again, just the financial considerations here.


That's a disheartening thing to hear.  Cutting out programming for web redesign seems like a bad trade to me.  How much is the webdesign?  I have often, and no offense intended, felt that we spend a lot of time and money on technology for a club of about 100+ members.  Just saying.

I'm with Scuba and Don. Each person willing could talk for 15 or 20 minutes about the "hows, whens, and whys" they keep fish. Be a GREAT way to get to know newer members, and for newer members to get to know some us that have been around longer. I reaaaaaly like this idea!

Sam,

Let me know if you can or not. We can make a decision then.

I may be able to speak on the "Cichlids of Costa Rica", which is about the fish in the country, their location, collecting, behavior, and how to keep them. I won't know until the end of August though, when I get my class schedules and would probably need to be flown in.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

Something along the same line of thinking as ScubaDiver would be a short talk on the BAP's that are turned in that night. You may find that we mite increase the sales
