Purpose

The Website Committee manages one of the four core functions to accomplish the Vision for World Service: “Whenever anyone, anywhere realizes they have a problem with food, they think of GreySheet.”

The committee is responsible for ensuring that our website, greysheet.org, is one of the first results when someone searches online for a solution to their problem with food, that the website provides answers to frequently asked questions, and that the site makes it easy for newcomers to get started in our program. In addition to these three ways our site directly serves our primary purpose, the website also provides resources for individuals, groups, and intergroups to support their own abstinence and to carry the message.

The chair of the Website Committee acts as Website Liaison, coordinating between the fellowship and the website professional.

Report

Update

Since our last report, submitted in March 2019, the 2019 World Service Conference approved both of our proposals:

After the GSA World Service Conference in 2019, the committee onboarded new members and volunteers and divided our initial efforts as follows:

As we moved into 2020, we began to focus on designing and building the new website to better serve the newcomer and the fellowship. This involved working with our website professional, the Board of Trustees, the eight other conference committees, and, more recently, with the ten intergroups. The aim was to launch the new site by the end of 2020. Our Project Manager has continued to work closely with the Committee Chairs and ISRs to review existing content and create new content.

The events of 2020 required the Website Committee to put more attention than we expected on the existing website, including the addition of some features that were meant to be introduced on the new site.

The $5,000 approved by the Board of Trustees in 2019 for the website redesign addresses only the most critical concerns of the fellowship about the existing site. The new site will include:

Plans

During 2020-2021, we plan to launch the newly designed group registration process and meeting list on the current site. We also hope to finish transferring existing content to the new website, add new content, and launch the new site. We plan to request that the Board of Trustees approve the $2500 quote for next set of most important improvements:

We plan to request a quote from our website professional to address the third set of improvements, work with the Board of Trustees to fund these, and manage that work.

We have postponed the professionally designed Style Guide and the Board of Trustees has published an Interim Style Guide and MS Word Template on the website.
