Modified the bullet point in the presentation to state:
Accessible in a formal location (the Work Group web page <and added the text> “or a link from the Work
Group web page”
Deleted the bullet point “Permanent residence not on a Wiki”

Web Services review with C-Team
Ken needs to discuss with Chuck Jaffe to discuss future releases to the website given a lack of
Marketing input. This will occur before the next C-Team call.
Ken is on the agenda for the next C-Team call, which occurs 2 weeks following the Rio WGM.
Website Project Update
The Internal Memberhip and Backoffice Order Entry Phase was released live to production on Friday,
May 14 .
The result of this launch is that gomembers‟ Q database is now the source of truth for membership data.
The legacy membership database, Commence, will be updated for next few weeks in case we
need the data as a back up.
Order Entry will be conducted via gomembers Q backoffice functionality. This replaces the legacy
Bookstore process that was done via legacy backend tools.
The next phase is to be launched in mid-July. These will be membership area changes to the HL7.org
To plan for the next release, we‟ll need to recruit testers.
We‟ll also want to have a „pre-release‟ to the TSC and ES WG listserv to check out the user facing
membership front end changes.
Lastly, in the October WGM, we‟ll want to celebrate the front end membership release.
Celebration Ideas: Ioana – shirts;
October presentations to Board, TSC, Wednesday night reception.
Mike Kingery - Investigate configuration or additional software to lock Wiki pages, for the purpose of
locking the minutes.
Lynn - Let PIC know about our changes and have PIC change the Co-chair handbook with the changes
ES WG to touch base with PIC through the summer months to insure co-chair handbook progress is
being made so that ES WG knows their Next Steps on this topic.
Ioana / Ken – Create a Project Scope Statement for the Web Conferencing need by HL7.org.
Ken - Set up conference calls, beginning June 8 . 3pm Tuesday.
Lynn – May need to move the Online Presence to be June 15 and every other week at 3pm Tuesday.
Tuesday, June 8 , then every other week.
