1. All web site or site page listing link requests shall be submitted to the Web Site Review Committee for review criteria compliance. The Committee shall review the listing request, decide on acceptance or denial recommendations, determine the appropriate category, and notify the Operations Administrator as well as, copying the Vice President of the review results. The Operations Administrator shall make the appropriate web page listing or in the event of a listing request denial, notify the requester of the committee's decision.
