  3. Editing privileges
    1. The Committee Chair assumes primary responsibility for updating the website.  (e.g., Amey Park)

    3. All members of the Web Committee should be trained minimally in how to take down the website.
    4. The technical advisors have editing privileges to be used in a technical advising capacity only (in other words, they cannot make changes to the content or create pages unless under the direction of a committee member).
    5. All committee members agree to create a secure (not-easily hacked) password.
    6. Approving website changes
