N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission's Web Site Wins Another Award
RALEIGH (Sept. 10)—The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission's Web site won first place in the Interactive Media category in a statewide competition conducted by the N.C. Association of Government Information Officers (NCAGIO). Commission Webmaster Lee Ratcliffe will be presented the first-place award at the NCAGIO annual seminar on Sept. 16 in Chapel Hill.
In a national competition conducted earlier this year, the Association for Conservation Information also gave first-place honors to the Commission for its Web site.
The Commission reorganized its Web site three years ago, when Ratcliffe assumed webmaster duties. Previously, the Commission organized its online information by its six constituent divisions — Enforcement, Engineering Services, Administrative Services, Conservation Education, Wildlife Management and Inland Fisheries. Ratcliffe helped to organize information by subject matter, such as fishing or hunting, which made the Web site easier to navigate.
"Lee's work as the Commission's webmaster has been exemplary," said Ginger Williams, chief of the Commission's Conservation Education Division. "One of Lee's primary goals was to reorganize the Web site so people could find information more easily. Judging from the positive comments we have received from hunters and anglers, they also agree it's an award-winning Web site."
The N.C. Association of Government Information Officers is a non-profit group of public affairs professionals in state and local government agencies, who are dedicated to the principles of open government. Members communicate with the government, media and public.
