The mandate of this committee is to redevelop and maintain the Georgina Historical Society website. In maintaining the website, this will include regular updates of content and information (e.g. general meeting dates, photos, and other important information). The website must also provide sources for information of local historical interest to the membership and general public. This will also serve to promote our society and its mandate to non-members.
