Summary of Work Completed
Autism Edmonton enhances the lives of families and individuals living with autism, by providing life-long support and creating awareness, acceptance, and opportunities in the Edmonton community.
Per the request of Lauren McGuinness, Autism Edmonton’s Manager of Programs and Services, I prepared a report to provide input and a preliminary analysis regarding Autism Edmonton’s IT infrastructure, which ultimately plays a key role in managing Autism Edmonton’s data and information, their community outreach, and effectiveness in communicating with members.
After discussing my role as a volunteer for the “Navigation Project”, which would have involved updating and checking links on their “Next Steps” PDFs, I had many questions and concerns regarding the current (manual) tools and systems in place at Autism Edmonton.
Therefore Lauren asked me to offer my professional point-of-view and feedback on the current state of IT/ website/ membership management/ communications at Autism Edmonton, taking into consideration the limited information and resources that Autism Edmonton had available.
I also prepared an essay based on my Management course assignment at Athabasca University.
