Music Teachers' Association Web Page

I've been tasked with the job of creating a web page for our local music teachers' association. So, I'm gathering ideas. Does your local association have a web page? What aspect of your web presence do you find most useful? I'd love links! Thanks for any help...

Hey Laura!

Our association website is http://wmmta.org. I used the Joomla open source content management system. It's a bit of a learning curve, but easy to maintain.

Natalie: the website looks fabulous. Thanks for the link. Joomla looks a little over my head, but maybe if I read their tutorials a bit more...

I was thinking about it for our association, but nobody is up to maintaining it at this point. What do you think of a blog?

Our state association (LMTA) used a site that MTNA provides. BUt you are talking about your local association? I think it's a good idea. BUt a blog is free. Our local association uses a yahoo group. It's not for the public so much as for all of us to communicate with each other.

Thanks for your comments, Mindy and Atara. I do think a blog is a definite possibility, especially if we used a paid one with a domain name and a few extra pages. My web building expertise is petty much limited to plugging things into templates and a few html tags.

For my personal site, I use yahoo business. I get a business e-mail, my domain, and a web program. It's super easy, no html to learn. I pay $12.95 per month for that and I love it!
