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
