I have been resisting the urge to reply to all this for some time now, 
however.....  I am not currently a contributing member of NAFEX, however 
I have been planning to be for some time. (I'm lazy I know).  In any 
case, my undergraduate was in Marketing and my Masters degree was in 
IT.  So with that being said;

1.  I am willing to volunteer to put Pomona into Adobe In-Design.  It is 
the gold standard for creating marketing collateral, and for creating 
professional looking PDF's.  Whatever I can do to help please let me know.

2.  I am also willing to work with whomever on a website re-design.  I 
have created numerous dynamic websites for several clients of whom I 
maintain to this day.  I have created forums, dynamic picture galleries, 
blogs, etc. etc. etc.

I won't charge for my services at all, and will consider it a labor of 
love for NAFEX.  So for what it is worth, I am willing to help if I can.
