Vermont Council on Rural Development

The Vermont Council on Rural Development helps Vermonters and Vermont communities develop their capacity to create a prosperous and sustainable future through coordination, collaboration, and the effective use of public and private resources.

After successfully launching a special program site for a VCRD project in 2005, FutureofVermont.org, VCRD requested a full upgrade of their home site. Because VCRD hosts many programs and projects such as the 'e-vermont' broadband initiative, it was a good candidate for a multi-domain site. This allows greater control and consistency across the different programs and sharing of common data, keeping the sites leaner and easier to manage.

This series of sites feature:

  • multiuser blogging
  • publication workflow
  • 'partnership' sign up for individuals and companies that feeds a newsletter distribution database
  • domain access
  • custom branding for programs
