  • Ensure consistency of terminology and references to digital resources across the main AgGateway website and the wiki;
  • Work with the website manager for updates to the main AgGateway website and make direct wiki updates or work with AgGateway volunteers to make them;
  • Work with the Director of Marketing and Communications to ensure consistent branding of digital resources;
  • Work with the Director of Marketing and Communications to identify ways to promote awareness of additions or improvements in AgGateway's digital resources;
  • Develop templates and guidelines for digital resource representation;
