Web designer

For our 45th anniversary, some of our members put together the amazing history of SPEC on some posters. We had an amazing graphic designer work on it, and now we just need to get it on our website. This is a short term project, so no big commitment required. The website uses WildApricot. Email Tova at volunteer(at)spec.bc.ca.
