The Committee is comprised of a webmaster, associate webmasters and content providers. Ideally, the Committee would be comprised of four to six members including one Board member to assure continuity of services and support and periodic updating of content. Members with background, training or interest in WordPress, web design, desktop publishing, blogging, and communications are particularly encouraged to join.
The purpose of the Committee is to manage the design and administration of the Association’s websites. These websites are extremely important to projecting a positive image of the Association and the development outwardly and to providing residents with sources and archives of accurate, timely, and useful information to enhance their Montage living experience.
The Montage at Mission Hills website (montageatmissionhills.org ) is a publically accessible website that provides members, real estate professionals, and interested parties with 24/7 access to important Association governance documents, announcements, and administrative reports; useful homeowner and visitor information; and Montage historical background.
The Montage at Mission Hills Nextdoor page is a private social network for Association members only. The site complements the montageatmissionhills.org site by providing features for discussion groups, lost and found, classified ads, free items, calendar and announcements as well as interaction with local public safety organizations. The site also allows for sharing with 18 adjacent HOA organizations.
The Website Committee maintains an online library of informational resources on the Committee webpage and is responsible for the administration of both the official Montage at Mission Hills (montageatmissionhills.org) WordPress website and assisting residents with use of the Montage at Mission Hills pages on the Nextdoor social networking website.
The Website Content Management and Publishing Policy provides standards and processes governing Website content (text, photos, video, audio, links, documents) creation, approval, and publishing for the Association website (Website). The policy has been created to make the Website distinctive for its integrated user experience, widely distributed creation and publishing responsibility, and flexibility to allow customized content to be produced by Association Members, Committees, and the Board.
