Maryland FFA is the state FFA organization which manages events and activities for high school students participating in FFA. They needed a site they could manage themselves. They had experience with computers and felt comfortable making changes to "static" pages, but needed more advanced tools for content that changed on a regular basis.
Maryland FFA needed a way to keep their statewide membership of students and advisors up-to-date on what was happening. PAQ built an integrated suite of tools to manage events, state officer information, headline news, and document exchange. The site allows staff to maintain its annual main events and other events throughout the year complete with photos and links to relevant content and downloadable files. Through the Latest Headlines tool, state staff can keep the site a resource for current events affecting chapters throughout the state. The state officers tool helps officers connect with members by building their profile and maintaining a blog about their activities during the year. The Chapter Guide provides an on-demand resources for advisors, students and parents with links to essential documents, contest rules and regulations, and other resources needed to run an active chapter. The integrated nature of the site's design and client managed tools create an interactive and up-to-date resource for Maryland FFA and its members.
