June 22, 2000

KALAMAZOO -- An Internet expert will offer tips on building your own Web site at a Western Michigan University workshop on Thursday, July 6.

Web designer Bryan Husk will present "Web Development: Planning, Producing and Publishing" at 6:30 p.m. at the Kalamazoo County Chamber of Commerce building, 346 W. Michigan Ave. The program, part of a monthly series of workshops offered by WMU's Women's Business Development Center, is free and open to the public.

In his talk, Husk will address the technology, terminology and tools involved in designing a Web site. He will touch on how to assess an organization's needs, and discuss which steps entrepreneurs can take on their own, as well as those tasks which require a professional.

As WMU's Web manager, Husk currently is redesigning the University's Web presence. He is responsible for managing the new home page and its subpages, including all additions and upgrades. After earning his bachelor's degree at the University of Michigan, Husk received a master's degree from WMU.

WMU's Haworth College of Business established the Women's Business Development Center in 1999 to offer support to female professionals and entrepreneurs through training, group and individual problem-solving consultation, current business information and networking opportunities.
