1. Special Topics:

New volunteer: Eric Pietrucha

Need to understand how we appear on mobile devices and set plan in place. (Web site looks great.)
AccuTerra -- share photos and track path on maps. iPhone app. May exist for Blackberry too.
External interest in our GPS info for an iPhone app. Doug knows someone who does apps. Walt has ideas for content. "I am here, how do I get back to my car?" Should we hire a developer and create something? For Catskill maps -- hold a geocaching contest as part of launch.

2A. Subteam status reports - first and third Mondays

* Office status (Josh)

* Google Analytics and Theming (Doug)

* Modifications to left and right column --
relocate Follow to upper right above bookmark feature
Navigation-> Trail Utilities & Tools and associate related links together
search old site -> footer
put most important links at top
where to put logged in userid ... upper right corner of header? --- Walt to move that out first. Then someone else can clean up left hand side.

left menu -- user-centered stuff and variable stuff related to permissions

Over 315 Twitter users now. 457 Facebook users. Doug tweets 15-20 minutes a day.

* Social Networking (Doug-acting)

• A lot of discussion going on - no one in charge of plan. What do we need here?
Doug set up dedicated channel in AARP.
Metro Trail Crew has Facebook page. (Our page needs links to other related Facebook pages.)
Georgette needs to review social media policy doc that Tina sent her.

Trail crews and other team in Trail Conference have Facebook or other Web presences ... publicize guidelines to follow. Georgette to follow up.

Make it easy to share content (Facebook Icons allow you to join. Bookmarks allow posting of email.)

Need user's guide to Facebook and Twitter -- how to set up and what you can do?

* Content (Georgette)

Reorganized Advocacy and updated Darlington pages.

• Hikes database - Phil to lead effort to expand to allow submissions from hikers (rework hike template, establish guidelines, and initiate program) Back in mid-March.
Phil also willing to train new volunteers.

Walt -- East Hudson trail initiative ... Leigh Draper needs Web presence. Walt suggests to do within project framework. Georgette and Walt to work together to set up.

* Business model (Ann)

• Update on how new volunteers are working out ... is everyone engaged?
