We decided on a DC-flag motif accented by shades of charcoal for the color scheme. Now to work on informational pages.
We need to lock down a theme so we can start adding custom images and applications.
We invited the 100 most active members of RPCV/W to participate in the development of our new site. Welcome!
We're experimenting with different typesets. What do you think looks good? Garamond or TW Cent MT?
We want to have the site ready to launch by October 1. Over the next few weeks, we'll be shifting through themes and migrating content from the old rpcvw.org.
Please read this post if you are helping to test the website. Click the title above to see more.
A recap on our efforts to create a new logo and website for the group.
Boston was the site of the 2013 Peace Corps Connect annual conference, bringing together representatives of the community from all over the country to meet and and share ideas on promoting the third goal. The RPCV/W delegation included President Mariko Schmitz, Social Director Courtney Dunham, PR Director Chris Robinson, and Board Member Emeritus Arvis Layton. They met with RPCVs and group leaders from as far away as Hawaii.
Here's the sample ballot for the upcoming elections. Members will vote on new directors, a new logo, and the recipient of our Partnership for Peace award.
Since 1985, RPCV/W has held a simple ceremony of remembrance at the gravesite of John F. Kennedy, founder of the Peace Corps. This year, we choose May 29, 2013, which would have been his 96th birthday.
