  4. Notes from Regina via Alison, re the old TAC website:
  • Old/current website hosted for free (by Dean), historically TAC made an annual donation of $50. Don’t think that has happened for awhile.
  • Regina supports work on new website and want’s to make sure we let Dean know that we’re moving forward with new site.
  • Regina will give him that donation personally, any concerns from TAC? Agreed with Regina going ahead with thanking Dean for his service and okay to make a personal donation.

Regina – Domain registration

  • Suggests keeping domain name up and operating and do automatic forward for a year so there’s a smooth transition
  • When new site is up Regina can automatically forward all traffic for a year
  • Note that current domain has a smart line attached (the hotline); Regina renewed in January, hotline will need to be moved by January 2024
