Publicity Report — Midwest Area Rally 2018

Midwest Area Website
The State Pages for the Midwest Area Website were brought online on January 27, 2018.  This has taken nearly a year of planning, study (on my part!), and now training and implementation. Thank you to all the states for their patience during this transition. Hopefully, can be a valuable resource for years to come.

In June, the site will renew.  As noted in the proposal introduced at last year’s MWA rally, for the first year, we had the benefit of an introductory rate with complimentary domain name registration.  To continue with the same plan, with the same number of states participating, it will cost approximately $30.00 / state that buys-in to the websites.
