Website

The Guild maintains this Website for the benefit of present and prospective members as well as the general public.

History of this Website - Norman Bliss presented a pilot version of a proposed GCNA Website to the 1996 GCNA Congress. After the Guild approved Norman's concept and general design, Wylie Crawford contracted for Web hosting services, and in December 1996 Norman installed the initial version of the Website for public access. Shortly thereafter, Carl Zimmerman added the initial version of what was then the Data segment of this Website. These three people continued to be responsible for their respective areas, and formed the core of the Guild's Internet Committee during the succeeding years. From time to time, other Guild members provided assistance with subject matter.

At the 2006 Congress, Norman expressed a desire to step down as Webmaster, and it was also decided that a new design for the Website would be useful. Norman continued to serve as interim Webmaster until the 2007 Congress, when Carl Zimmerman was appointed to carry on as interim Webmaster for the top-level section of the Website until the new design became available. Subsequent changes to this section were primarily for routine maintenance of the material presented to visitors.

The present version of the Guild segment of this Website was designed and developed by Dawn Daehn (2D Web Design), with advice and support from the entire Internet Committee. It superseded the previous version on 12 November 2008, and Carl Zimmerman became the Webmaster for entire Website. In late 2010, the Internet Committee implemented further technological enhancements to the Guild segment of this Website, along with some changes of content. On April 1, 2012, Mr. Zimmerman severed all connection with the Website, moving what had been its Data segment (and a product of his life's work) to www.TowerBells.org, where it remains accessible to the public.
