About The Technology Committee

 

Technology Committee Mission

The mission of the 9th District Technology Committee is to ensure that any and all technical applications and platforms in use by the District are adequate, appropriate, continuously operational, and properly maintained in order to support the District's initiatives, programs, and the dissemination of information to the Brotherhood.  Our primary purpose includes the oversight of the District's website, including but not limited to:

  • Ensuring 24x7 accessibility and operation,
  • Managing updates,
  • Documenting, tracking, and resolving any related issues in a timely manner, and
  • Providing the Brothers with the means to provide feedback or to report any issues. 

The Technology Committee is also responsible for individually supporting the DR, Council Members, and other District Committee Chairmen with their technical needs (i.e. regarding conference calls, webinars, presentations, uploads to website, etc.), providing answers for any technology-related questions, and making recommendations regarding use of appropriate technologies, so they may be able to effectively carry out the duties of their position.
