BD.18.131 Paid Advertisements on ASCA Website

Motion by Vest

Second by Silveira

I move to remove paid advertisements from the ASCA website home page in order to maintain the website home page for ASCA information only. This will remove all extraneous advertisements and provide a more professional look to the ASCA website. Paid advertisements will still be accepted and displayed on a separate page created specifically for

advertisements.

 

Comments/Rationale: To elevate ASCA’s brand by reserving the ASCA website home page for ASCA business/info only.

 

Affected: Advertisement customers and ASCA webmaster.

 

Effective Date: Immediately upon approval by the Board of Directors
