Web Site Duties:

On the GWTA Web site, as well as any regional, state/provincial or chapter site, we rely on officers and members to inform us of any changes that need to be made in order to keep the sites current. Outdated and/or incorrect information makes the whole association look bad, and our Webmasters only know what they've been told. Let's help them out by keeping them informed.

Check the Web sites within your area of responsibility and if you find one that is outdated, ask the party responsible to have it updated. If a site is abandoned let all Webmasters who may have a link to it know as soon as possible so they can remove the bad link. Again, these sites reflect poorly on the association and the entity they represent.

On the association Web site, go to the Locator Map, click your region on the map, then go through the information on that page to see that your information is up-to-date. From that area there are links to region, state/provincial and chapter Web sites as well as officer names, email addresses and phone numbers. This is important contact information.


Build Your Own Web Site Resources

You can create your own Web site and you can do it at no cost. That's right, free. Some ISPs offer free server space for personal Web sites to their customers. Check to see if yours does; you can avoid banners and pop-ups on most of them. Alternatively, for under $100 per year, you can get the server space needed with an easy to remember address of your own, then you'll be free of all the trappings of most of the slow, small, banner or pop-up ad-infested free sites.

Creating a Website - Here's a free easy guide that walks you through every step of creating a website from start to finish. NOTE: On this site they will offer links to vendors they recommend (and probably receive payment from); visiting the site below will give you a wide range of options.
