Welcome to PACT’s new web portal. Much like the magical experience of entering into the Canada Council’s new digital realm, be sure to come equipped with the tools and garb of any good sorcerer. Here you are sure to find many new wonders; a place to share spells (or HR documents), a…. joke abort… joke abort…
Okay, so, it’s hard to get too excited about a new website these days but it’s rare that one is put together in a way that so thoroughly serves the community it is designed to serve. Sara, Meg, Dylan and Blair have really outdone themselves in putting this together. Here we have a long sought repository for both formal documents and peer to peer sharing – searchable no less. We have a place that can highlight the activities of our members, serve advocacy functions and have refined our conference registration processes (not that the old system didn’t have it’s charms in a Commodore 64 kind of way, Boomer) The upgrade on all fronts is nothing short of tectonic.
*IF YOU ONLY READ ONE PARAGRAPH OF THIS POST, READ THIS ONE:
However, this website will only be as useful as its users! The value of any platform or technology is in the community who engages with it – think beta vs VHS. So please, when you have a document that you think would be useful to your peers, upload it! When you have a strong opinion, share it! When you’ve accomplished something you are proud of,let us help you tell the world!
Look forward to seeing you all in May!
