     7== Goal for the Year ==
     8
     9In addtion to our on-going goal of ensuring the data sovereignty of our organization and members, this year, we are focusing in particular on member communication: we have lots of great tools that nobody knows about. We want to improve our communication to our members of what we have and how to use it
     10 
     11The benefit to our membership is not only knowledge and ability to use these tools, but also a strengthened sense of their membership in or ourganization and what that membership means. By communicating what we have, we also have the opportunity to communicate who we are and why we exist.

    713== Ongoing Tasks ==

     21== Outreach ==
     22
     23We have a special opportunity this year since Ross, one of the critical members of our team, is moving to Mexico City. We plan to take advantage of this move to help build the support team in Mexico City. By the end of the year, we would like to have an established core team in Mexico City, meeting monthly.

    1727In addition to our ongoing tasks, we propose the following special projects for 2014:

    19  * Automatic https-enabled web sites for all members. Currently, all of our members have easy access to http (non-encrypted nor authenticated) web sites. Every member can add an https (encrypted and authenticated) web site, however, it requires many cumbersome steps. By the end of 2014, we would like to streamline this process so that all members automatically have an https site that is signed with an MF/PL certificate and can easily be modified to be signed with a corporate provided certificate. Ticket: #407.
