Plan of Action

The first priority will be assessing the current site's security, back-up plan, hosting environment, visitor analysis software, and ensuring information in the WHOIS database and domain register is correct.

Also of priority is meeting with the stakeholders to determine any immediate needs needed. We will also discuss long-term plans for the site, the possibility of redesign and/or rebuilding the site, and whether to continue to host the site at the current service provider.

Services can begin as soon as July 1st, 2020.
