Website maintenance and update

The board is evaluating the website for revisions/updates.


The Frederick News Post has submitted a proposal to produce the Brunswick Business Directory. The negotiated Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between GBACC and the FNP was discussed and suggestions will be incorporated in a new draft to be submitted to the FNP. A motion was passed to work with the FNP to produce the next edition of the Directory.

There was only one design submitted for the Directory cover. The board agreed to honor the terms of the contest as published in the GBACC newsletter and the Citizen and accepted the design with the condition that we will request that the FNP pay for the design out of the ad sales revenue.
