We recently launch a brand new website for the International Society for Subsurface Microbiology. The society is for scientists who study this expanding field that focuses on microbial life below the surface of the earth. Membership in the society gives them the opportunity to network and interact with their peers as well as stay up to date about symposiums, conferences, and other events.
The website was designed in partnership with Ron Harvey, U.S. Geological Survey, a former president of the ISSM. He expressed an early desire to manage the site’s contest himself so the decision was made to built the site on the WordPress platform. Ron polished his CMS skills quickly and started to modify text, add photos, and make other changes almost immediately.
With a great Google ranking and help from within the scientific community, the site is flourishing as evidenced by a steady stream of new registrations to join the society.
We are proud to have been a part of that success.
