We had a professional flyer created and had proposed to use its making security visa le blurb to update the content 


Remove the corporate supporter logos on home page (all of them) and use a dedicated page for that.  Removal of google calendar as this is rarely used by chapters and if needed for a calendar of events, that should be a separate page too

Right navigation I cleaned it up a few months ago

Left navigation is better then it was.

Translation widget is broken

It's a wiki after all and making these adjustments was proposed to the list --- then lost momentum.  Anyone want access to take a crack at a clean up exercise? (Front page is locked to normal users)
