Springs Historical Society is looking for a volunteer web designer.

The Board of Trustees of the Springs Historical Society is putting out a call to its members and their friends, asking for help in finding a local web designer who would be willing to donate his/her time and expertise in setting up a combined web site for the Society and Springs Library.

As with many other non-profit organizations, we feel a web presence is vital in keeping the community informed of what we have to offer, opening a dialog with the community and maintaining and expanding a robust membership.

The site would include pages with headings such as: Home, About, Membership, Events Calendar, Historical Archives, and Library, in addition to others suggested during development. We hope to have the site up and running before the Summer.

Keeping our desired late Spring launch date in mind, anyone interested in offering their services can email Kevin Kennedy at [email protected] with ’SHS Web Proposal’ in the subject line.

Please include the following in your response:

1. Your contact information (full name, address, email and phone number).

2. A summary of your web design experience with links to finished projects.

3. A list of the platforms and programs you use in your development work.

4. If you’ve had experience with community non-profits or similar organizations.

5. Please respond by February 28th.

Thank you for your continuing support.

Kevin Kennedy, Member Board of Trustees
Chairman Web Development Committee
and
Donald Sussis, President, Springs Historical Society
