ii. The committee has been researching the options and has looked at a company called They built and maintain the website for OPhA and several other groups. They also send out regular Facebook and Twitter feeds. They charge $50 per month to maintain the site and $75 for each task they need to perform once the site is created. They estimated the cost to be approximately $2000 to create the website and member database using Juneau. Ben Welch also expressed willingness to work with a new company during the recreating of the website/database and help as needed.
iii. The committee will investigate whether a membership database must be separate or if it can be combined with the website. Either way, they would like to give the members the ability to pay online and see when their membership will expire. The membership database would need to communicate with the website.

Tentatively, the board thought this amount was reasonable but did not make a motion to approve anything yet and asked the committee to go out and get estimates and bring them back to the board for discussion.
