CAMMAC is currently recruiting a volunteer webmaster to take over from Claudia Morawetz, who created our current website and is resigning from her webmaster position. We want to express our sincere thanks to Claudia for all the work she has done for CAMMAC over the past many years.
This position requires someone who knows the technical side of web work. Peter Lowensteyn, who also deserves our sincere thanks, handles the content side of our website. While it is difficult to know the exact number of hours of work required, we estimate that 5-10 hours a month should be sufficient. (CAMMAC envisages redoing its website completely as soon as our finances allow us to do so).
Responsibilities for the webmaster include:
- Being the technical contact for the cammac.ca domain name and ensuring that the domain is renewed in November 2009 and handling any related communications
- Being the technical contact for the hosting service of the website. The webmaster renews the ISP services (currently with bluehost.com). The next expiry date is October 2009. The webmaster handles occasional related e-mails.
- The webmaster reads e-mails coming to the email@example.com e-mail box. Mostly this involves forwarding the e-mails to the appropriate staff person at CAMMAC.
- The webmaster has full access to the cammac.ca ISP and sets up, modifies or removes cammac.ca mailboxes as appropriate and oversees spam filtering, web statistics and sets up the FTP access allowing regional webmasters to upload their files.
- Makes any occasional but necessary changes in the membership renewal form (the script is written in Perl).
- The CAMMAC on-line library is out of date. It is unlikely that this situation will be remedied until the overall website is redone. However, any changes to this require an understanding of PHP and the MySQL extensions.
If you are qualified to help CAMMAC in this way and wish to apply for this volunteer position, please send your C.V. and letter to Harry Qualman, President of CAMMAC at the following address: Thanks for helping!
Please note that at least some bilingualism, while not required, would be a helpful asset.
