I attended WordCamp Raleigh at NC State this last weekend. I’d been hoping to make it an excuse for an AAUW WordPress discussion for the webmanagers in NC (and nearby) who use Site Resources?(AAUW’s hosted multisite for branch and state websites).That didn’t work out, but here’s the list of links that I could find for the presentations.

I guess I did expect that versions suitable for social media profiles (e.g. square) would be among those released early. A date in “March” will suffice — but better staff oversight of what’s happening in the member conversations in social media might have headed off some wasted effort.
