I would like to see a push for electronic forms. I have spoken with my
council about creating templates in WordPerfect 6.1 for the following:
The response was as follows: They believe that there isn't a large
enough market to support the work it would take to create them for every
word processor on the market.
They do have a good point, however, those of us who are computer
oriented see this as a no-brainer. I even told them that if they would
make a policy to accept them, that I would do the work for free.
I didn't get very far with my suggestion. These forms could easily be
created as templates in WordPerfect, Word and Amipro. Even as ASCII
form. But we need to convince them to accept this type of form over
their manual form.
If any of you have thoughts or know the process to convince a council
or national to accept electronic forms vs pre-printed forms. Please
