The blog may be quiet, but I certainly am not!

Over the last couple of months, I have been working vigorously behind the scenes on several of the key forms that Norm used to have up on our old site.  The forms had to be rebuilt using a new form host due to incompatibility issues by our old service with our new site.  As it becomes time to renew your membership, or sign up fresh, you will discover the first of many forms that had to be rebuilt.  As of this posting, I have updated the STUDENT INTERN page with more information as well as the electronic application/form for the Student Internship position.  I have many other forms built and waiting in the wings and will be tweaking and revealing them as it comes time for their release.

As always, if you have any thought, ideas or concerns about the site you may e-mail me at

Thank you and have a great day!


Several Updates

Quite a lot has been taken care of behind the scenes over the past several weeks:

  • Annual Conference 2015 ARCHIVE is up and can be found HERE.
  • All MoSRT blogs can be found by moving your mouse cursor over the BLOG link in our navigation bar and selecting the blog you're seeking in the drop down menu.  Mobile users will simply see the blogs visible beneath the BLOG section in the scroll wheel that presents itself when you click the NAVIGATION button.
  • Our home page will simply contain a blurb alerting/linking users to updates in the various sections when they happen.  There are several reasons for this change, most importantly being cutting down on a large amount of scrolling to get through some of the larger updates.  I'd like to hear your thoughts on what you think.  Like it?  Hate it?
  • I'm still working with our previous host in an effort to get the site over to the address.
  • I've added a link to the ASRT JobBank on our new home page.  If you're in the market for a new job or a student preparing to graduate, this is the place to go to seek out employment opportunities.  I've set the link up for the National database (why limit opportunities to just our state when there are many technologists that sit near the borders of Missouri, you can narrow down the search by clicking on Location on the left side of their site).
  • DONATE button page added to the NAVIGATION bar.

Once again, as Webmaster I'd like to hear your thoughts on the site.  Please do not hesitate to e-mail me if you have any comments or suggestions.  Thanks!

The 2015 Conference results will go up once we've gone through all of the photos.

Due to the sheer number of photographs that were taken at the 2015 MoSRT Conference, it will take us some time to get the information posted.  Once the photos have arrived, the information  will be updated in the ARCHIVES section, and it will be announced on the front page.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you have any questions feel free to e-mail

Clean-up activities.

  • Identified grammar/spelling mistakes and edited them.
  • Added a Student Intern page to the Navigation List in preparation to include important information regarding the application process and what our current student interns have been up to.
  • I've created several additional pages that will include the rules/application process for scholarships, scientific essays and scientific displays.  Once I have the information required I will update and include those pages under the CONFERENCE page.
  • Speaking of which.  The CONFERENCE page will now include pertinent links/files/forms for the upcoming (next) conference.  Previous conference information can be found on the ARCHIVES page.
  • Electronic Fellow Application has been taken down at the request of the Fellow Committee Chair for numerous reasons.  At this time the Fellow Application process will remain as is documented here.
  • Added a memorial album link to IN MEMORIAM for Henry Cashion courtesy of Janet Akers.

New webmaster page

I've created a new webmaster specific blog that will contain updates made to the site.  I believe it is important that members (and non-members alike) see that the site is being updated on a consistent basis.  By creating a separate blog we will keep the clutter of weekly/monthly site updates off the front page, keeping the focus of the main blog on current events around the state.
