Federal Relations launches new site in Omni
Vanderbilt’s Office of Federal Relations advocates on behalf of federal legislation, regulations and policy that could affect Vanderbilt University. They recently launched a shiny new website, now managed in OmniUpdate. We have consulted with them over the past year on their new social media presences as well — they’ve launched both Twitter and Facebook presences to provide another method for people to keep in touch with what’s going on.
It was a pleasure to work alongside colleagues in Public Affairs from our Washington, D.C. office — Janelle St. Croix and Margie Glick — on the migration of their site from a Dreamweaver-managed site, that hadn’t been significantly updated since 2008, into one of our centrally-supported content management systems, OmniUpdate.
Federal Relations also manages two of their regular e-mail newsletters within OmniUpdate, using a simple WYSIWYG interface to easily create HTML emails and send out to daily/weekly subscribers.
- DCbrief, a daily email newsletter of federal developments of interest to the Vanderbilt community
- VUbrief, a weekly email that provides key members of the Washington, DC community with a timely summary of developments at the university
