After reading all of the arguments, of which I have to say that I agree
with most of you who argue that the US marketing list should not be on
the international list, I would like to propose that the US get their
own site as suggested here:

If the US members all agree we could then get together and develop the
US site and the marketing link will be put on this site.

Drew and other US members, would you agree to this?

I would also propose then, that there also be a Canadian site added: for Canadians.

Would any other Canadian members agree to this?

This would then solve all of the problems associated with listing the US
marketing group on the international site.

People, please consider that, up until today, there was NO site listed anywhere and that we had been instructed
by the SC that the US marketing effort was one of the priorities set for
the North American membership. As such, there was NO mention of the US
Marketing team anywhere and this was causing problems for the US
marketing team ... btw ... of which Canada serves as junior partner.



If we are going to allow other English NL groups to set up their site, how could we then refine our website landing identification. I would want to land on the Canadian site. As it stands now, if I go to, it will shuffle me to the international site as my browser is in English. Is there a way that the Website gurus could figure this out?

BTW ... I am French Canadian and am usually sent to the French site as my browser is in French. Hmmmm .....

As you are all aware, this will open up the creation of quite a few sites now that we would no longer be operating really as NL (language based sites) but as Country sites. So, the EN, FR, ES languages sites will see their membership lessen and fragment into smaller country driven sites. But then again, the FR and ES sites can be more accommodating due to their not being the international landing site.

If we now return to the original problem, it was to have the team have some kind of presence on (I guess at this point we could say ANY) section of the website. But I realize now that the UK, AU, NZ marketing teams also were lacking presence anywhere on the site. But then the same could be said for the FR and ES countries, although, if they advertised their marketing teams on the FR and ES websites this would not cause as much controversy as the EN international site.

Is there any other option that we should consider?
