Editor’s note: this is a copy of the Site Management Resources page from the State Site. In the short term, you can use this to help you build your Chapter Site. But, it will get out of date and so for the long haul, you should just link to the State Site here.
But we included this page because you might want to use this format for managing the unique aspects of your site. With the layout common to that of the state, it might be easier to find everything.
