People need to help meets run smoothly

Help us update our website

It has been a few years since we looked at our website design and the collective wisdom is that we can do better.  We are looking for volunteers for two roles:

  1. People to give us feedback on our work - thoughts on the current website, other LMSC websites that they think are good, and feedback on a redesigned website.
  2. People who can help with the website redesign
