The ACMOC board of directors recently considered the topic of links to our bulletin board or web site. They delegated the task to the website committee (Joe Black, George Howard, Jenny Penrod) and told us to approve on a case-by-case basis. We are willing to put links up here, and would encourage nominations by our viewers. We think they ought to be of relevant interest to our site users, and offer to link us on their web site. Any requests for links to commercial sites will be reviewed and considered. Below is the text of the minutes of the meeting in relation to website links. GWH
"3. Placing links on our website. A discussion ensued about whether or not to authorize “links” to other websites from our website. Factors to be considered were mentioned, including the reciprocity of the linked website, the quality of the website being linked to, and whether the other website would be relevant to our membership’s interests. Another concern was how to handle non-construction site requests, and commercial site requests.
"Jim Clack moved the following resolution, and Don Dougherty seconded the motion.
"Resolution Number 62:
"Resolved, that the authority to approve links to our Internet website is delegated to the website committee; that the committee will review all requests in light of quality factors and reciprocity, and if the committee turns down a request, the requester may appeal the committee’s decision to the board of directors.
"The motion passed and the resolution was adopted."
