I've been a member of NCBC for 4 years now, and have had the opportunity for three of those years to be a member of the NCBC website committee, which is under the leadership of Joe Markley (NCMB). The team is just awesome and they include Matt Brittain (NCMB), Dorenda Turner (INSB), Rosette Montes-Hempler (NVB) and Eileen Garrity (MAB). We manage and administer the main NCBC website, our social sites (we are on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter), setup the annual NCBC Conference mobile website and help the host court with content preparation and publishing.
Here at the Central District of California, I have a TDY arrangement with the Administrative Office assisting with the Court Site Template project which is basically the Drupal environment selected for the Court's Intranet environment. I also provide shared services support for courts who request assistance with migrating content over to this environment or any other web-related services. As a result, attending the NCBC Conference on an annual basis gives me the opportunity to discuss and collaborate with court personnel who I may have phone conversations or email correspondence with throughout the year. It's a great opportunity to meet them in person!
NCBC feels like a small family. If you are considering to become a NCBC member, it's definitely worth it. And if you are a member and you meet the eligibility requirements outlined by visiting http://www.ncbcweb.com/scholarship-info, you should definitely consider applying for the scholarship next year. I mean what a venue...New York, NY...the Big Apple!
