  • Updating the website
    -For visual appeal and mobile use
  • Modifying the forum
    -Classified / Marketplace only
  • Creating a new consistent brand identity across all platforms


As we make these changes, we want to be transparent in our process and encourage member participation.

To date, we have:


  • A new Planning Committee Member / Social Media Manager:
    -Mike Baker
  • A new Planning Committee / Communications Team Member:
    -Missy Puckett
  • New Member Volunteers (A-Z First Name):

   Big Shout-Out to Mike, Missy, and all our new Member Volunteers!

The Policy Sub-Planning Committee has also been busy developing a full range of positive polices for identity, branding, and community building.

To ensure consistency, we will post these policies to the website once they are all completed and have been reviewed by VCOA National.

2. Sac Volvo Club Websites: Remodel Update / New Google Sites Announcement

The Sac Volvo Club websites are created through Classic Google Sites.

On November 9, 2016, Google announced that the New Google Sites is available to everyone and discussed a migration timeline:

https://gsuiteupdates.googleblog.com/2016/11/a-totally-rebuilt-google-sitesnow.html

Copy and paste from above link RE: Classic to New Google Sites migration:

Please note:

  • In 2017, we’ll provide and recommend options to migrate your sites from the classic Sites to the new Sites.
  • Beginning in 2018, we’ll send a timeline and instructions regarding the gradual process to shut down the classic Sites. The specific date for the shutdown of the classic Sites has yet to be set, but we’ll inform you at least one year in advance of that shutdown.


A comparison of Classic versus New Google Sites Features as compiled by a Google Sites Help Forum Top Contributor:

The Sac Volvo Club Website Re-Design Team is monitoring the developments and will delay re-designing the main Sac Volvo Club website until we learn more about the New Google Sites development / migration.
