MnGCA website Webmaster needed:

Looking for an individual who is competent in php, mysql, and Linux sh or bash. Preferably the correct person will also have Drupal, phpbb, IP.Board, and some basic graphic design/editing experience.  If you have some of these skills, even if you don't have all of them, please contact us and let us know your experience.

Ideally the board would like to bring both the main site software and the forum software up to date, and consider how to integrate today's other technology websites, such as Facebook and Twitter, into the overall plan.

The webmaster would also be responsible for day to day operations of the site, which consists mainly of vetting new user accounts to eliminate probable spammers.  Day to day requirements take a minute or two daily.  Long term requirements for updating the software and such would be dependent on the individual's skill level.

The webmaster reports directly to the MnGCA board and advises the board as required on issues related to the website.  This is a non-paid, volunteer position.  We are looking for an individual that is willing to make a long term commitment (2+ years).

Depending on the skill level of the person selected, you would receive some basic instruction about the website from the current webmaster and the current webmaster would continue to be available to answer questions as he's able.

If you are interested in helping out your organization in this position, please send an email to: board@mngca.org

Thank you

In the area of webmaster it does, yes. I've been contemplating the move for quite some time but didn't want to burden the outgoing board during the time of elections.

I still remain active in the organization and the sport in other areas, this is just one facet that was time for me to move out of.
