Moving eBase to Web. CiviCRM as candidate. Walt attended session in NYC. Works on Drupal 6. Costs of acquisition - software, customization, etc. Run own copy & make own changes. SAS - must pay someone to make changes, code runs on provider's server.

It's probably time for us to move to Drupal 6. (Breaks Trellon code. What is impact? Ask Trellon to size effort.) Early analysis shows there is little other impact to our site.

Refocus Web status meeting team for new stuff.
