Steve LaRocque and the CMS’ Digital Transformation
2020 marks a digital turn for the CMS. CMS Notes is now an online-only publication on a new platform. The CMS website has also migrated to a new platform and has been transformed into a more user-friendly site for mathematicians and members to navigate. All these transformations could not have been possible without the generous help of Steve LaRocque, a long-time CMS collaborator. CMS Manager of Electronic Services and Mr. LaRocque’s colleague, Alan Kelm had this to say about Steve’s role in fashioning the new CMS websites:
Steve LaRocque has demonstrated exceptional skill and dedication in piloting the development of the new CMS website and the new CMS Notes website. While it is easy to build simple websites in WordPress, developing complex multilingual sites, like that of the CMS, requires careful selection and integration of plugins, and refining site appearance and behaviour can be challenging. Steve has excelled in all of these tasks and has also simplified back-end administration to enable staff to readily deploy and update all content. Having worked in Electronic Services at the CMS from 2008 to 2018, Steve’s intimate knowledge the organization and its systems positioned him well for these projects, and the CMS is appreciative of his work in carrying them to completion.
The CMS would like to thank Mr. LaRocque for all his work and dedication.
