    • End stage of whole Academy site is TBD
    • A collaborator in this area is welcome. I will add a note to that effect will on the site.

organization of test site commentary
Organization of Test Site & Commentary
  • MAEA Home
    • Look and feel are my design.
    • Comments are welcome,viz: compliance with Dept style
      • at top level (planned)
      • at lower levels (not my plan, due to ease of using iWeb tool)
  • About us
    • My choice of material I found in documentation available on server.
    • Additional info that could be added: history, …
  • Leadership
    • Council
    • 3 principles per their description (Industry Advisor (& IAC) TBD)
  • Initiatives – 4 currently identified
    • FE Exam write-up is done.
    • Need “ready-to-post” material for all others.
  • Photos
    • These are publicly accessible by policy. I need input from the members to:
    • Confirm use of the current photo or provide replacement
    • Provide 1-paragraph bio – ready-to-post
    • Contact known members whose photos are missing

going forward issues
Going Forward Issues
  • Purpose & activity level needs specificity
    • I will work with Leadership
    • Suggestions & commentary from members welcome
      • Submit these directly to the site
    • LAP priorities:
      • communication among Academy members
      • “market” the Academy to prospective recruits, Dept, CoE, University
  • Overall impression needs attention
    • See observation below
  • LOE required to develop & maintain
    • Two examples:
      • MAE Dept: Jim V., ~ ½-hr/week IF there are active contributions
      • NASA NCCS: 0.2 FTE Web Designer on continuous basis

One Website Observation(Michael Reischman <> )
  • It is an excellent start on the communication tool that the academy needs.
  • But I must say the MAEA looks a bit haphazardly constructed and disjointed--not because of the web site but more due to the materials incorporated.
  • If I am a new member, I see a lack of structural coherence and participation by the general membership. I'm afraid those things are not good.
  • But, again, let me say the web site itself is a great start on a very important communication tool.
    • Share my thoughts if you like.
