Hello, and welcome to SHARE in San Francisco! I would like to introduce myself for those of you that don’t know me. My name is Deb McCarty and I have been a long time attendee at SHARE. I have the privilege right now of managing the Community Enablement portfolio for SHARE. I’m hoping that if you are reading this you have logged onto the new SHARE website, but if not, let me tell you why you should!
Last year we converted to a new platform for the SHARE website called Socious, which made our website easier to search, offered new ways to engage with other SHARE members, and improved our members’ ability to manage their memberships. We have been really excited about this conversion and feel the new system is a tremendous improvement.
In 2013 we would like to make www.SHARE.org an indispensable resource for you and your organization. It should be the one place that you can count on to get the information you need. While we already have some great ideas on how to get started, we would love your feedback as well. If you have suggestions on how to improve or enhance www.SHARE.org, please visit www.SHARE.org/IssueTracker and post your comments, or contact SHARE Headquarters at SHAREhq@SHARE.org.
I would like to ask that if you are attending the SHARE conference and have any ideas of how to improve our website and the ease of use that you seek me out. If you unfortunately are not here please contact me at any time, Debbie.firstname.lastname@example.org, I look forward to hearing from you.
