Good Cause Needs Your Web Skills

The Polish Genealogical Society needs a volunteer to help them update and maintain their website. It's a very large genealogical society with international membership that will provide excellent exposure for your skills to the world.

Even if you have only a little experience and can commit to serving a deserving institution, this is your chance. By the way, there is an excellent blog which can show you tips about web design for charities/not-for-profits here.

Here's what you need to know about the PGSA Webmaster position:

A working knowledge of the following languages/skills is helpful to navigate and maintain today’s Web site:
