Some of that content should be auto-fed into a CMS page -- keeping pages up to date.CCALEvery year, student organizations must "register" their student organization. This is currently done through a web form using Cforms. But this really isn't a dynamic way of updating information. If student organizations could use the previous year's data and then update what they need to, this will be much more efficient at gathering new information and updating old information. Forms are OK but there should be a better way.

This is similar with conferences at Middlebury.
