New website for ACI being considered
The Association of Catholics in Ireland (ACI) Steering Group met on Tuesday 11 December 2012. The meeting focused on two issues:
- The design of the ACI Website
- Organisational issues.
Since the November General Meeting, three members of the Steering Group have been concentrating on the website project. Discussions have been held with a number of website design companies and a range of options are being considered. A final decision on the website will be made shortly after Christmas and the plan is to launch the website as soon as possible thereafter.
To progress the discussion on organisational options for the ACI, a number of individuals with expertise in organisational structures, particularly in the voluntary and community sectors, were consulted since the November meeting. Discussion papers submitted by these individuals were considered at the recent meeting. Work on this key issue will continue in the New Year.
The Steering Group would like to acknowledge the support received from those individuals who have assisted in progressing the website project and those who offered advice and guidance on the issue of organisational structure.
Since the November meeting the Steering Group has been in contact with a number of groups and individuals around the country who are either organising at local level or else seeking support and advice on the best way to proceed in support of the ACI initiative. The Steering Group recommends using the ACI email facility firstname.lastname@example.org – any communication submitted via this email facility will be accessed only by members of the Steering Group.
