Finding and Choosing A Web Designer

 
Keep in mind a mistake that many organizations have made: handing all Web site development -- from content creation to regular maintenance -- to a consultant or to only one staff member. This is an inefficient and costly way to handle your Web activities! ALL STAFF should have access to and input regarding your organization's Web site, to ensure it reflects the mission and the qualities of your organization and individual departments, and to ensure that you don't create a costly dependance on an outside consultant (more content suggestions here). 

Someone in-house should be able to make regular changes to the site without needing assistance of the web designer; whomever designs your web site MUST design the web site with this in mind!
