It looks like I was successful in posting the event through the ADR Section's home page. I think the welcoming message led me to the invalid website. That's probably an easy edit to help other newcomers when they join the Section.
When I entered information about my event and clicked on "Save," I was automatically directed to that website. Upon that, I received the feedback message that the website was not valid. There may be an extra step for me to take in order to reach a valid website to post the event.
It worked! As I am a bit of a neophyte (certainly not a Luddite) when it comes to the Internet and "social/professional Internet networking," so I may tap you occasionally if I run into a brick wall. My web guy is pretty great at answering my questions, but I likely will run into occasional industry-specific challenges. I trust I would not be imposing myself on you. Maybe you could supplement your "Beyond the Courthouse" income with a consulting business.
Talk with you soon,
Thanks for your note. I am really pleased with developments in the WSBA ADR Section, particularly this enhanced mode of communication. Although I do not want to put my hat in the ring to fill the vacancy on the Board of the Section, I feel strongly that the Section should foster closer ties with the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution and I can contribute to this effort. Thanks for your work in invigorating the Section. I hope to see you soon at one of the many ADR conferences and events.
