Welcome to the new LLSS Council site

I have been unable to make changes to the A&S Council web site for weeks now.  I mentioned at the LLSS meeting on January 11 that I would investigate setting up a new site seperate from UT’s site because of all the problems I’ve been having with it.

I will be adding pages and links over the coming weeks and plan on posting agenda and updates on the main page as we go along. The exec committee and I will decide on how comments will be handled on the site.

Your feedback is welcome. If you have any suggestions concerning the new web site, I would love to hear them.
