DUNWOODY, GA - (July 31, 2008) Website Specialists of SDOC Publishing announced today that they have launched two new websites for non-profit organizations based in Orange County, California.

The Central Orange County Alumnae Panhellenic (COCAP) and the Phi Mu Alumnae Chapter of Orange County are enjoying a fresh web presence. For COCAP, this is the first website they have ever had. The sites are located at and

"Few locations in the world evoke an image as lush and exciting as Southern California," says SDOC owner Adrienne Duncan. "How can anyone not just indulge in incorporating that imagery in a website while building the functionality?"

COCAP and Phi Mu both were designed for simplicity in presenting information, search engine optimization, and ease of maintenance by organization members.

"Websites don't have to be complicated to be both beautiful and useful," notes Duncan.

COCAP played a big part in the design of their site. "We went through more than five different designs and layouts before we found the one that was right. It was truly a collaborative, organic process this time and the result was perfect for them." COCAP's design has a retro "mod" 60s feel with open links across the navigation banner. "The design elements are not just aesthetic," confides Duncan. "If you look closely, you can see that the links are all the symbolic colors of the member sororities. It shows in a subtle way that the different groups work together."

Orange County Alumnae's site was a different process. "I was given free rein, no restrictions whatsoever. I decided to lay out a design that just screamed "ORANGE COUNTY!" Palm trees, sunset over the ocean, and just enough glitter. I designed that site in one shot, no edits at all! The organization loved it at first sight."

Duncan is quick to point out that what both sites have in common is that the information in them is organized clearly, everything is easy to find, and most of all, easy for the organizations to maintain. "If there was ever a time the source code had to be clean, up to date, and simple, this was it. A member of each organization is going to do the updating, and they are not professionals. I had to set up their design so that they could make updates with little chance of any problems or mistakes. They're both very happy with how easy it is to maintain."

SDOC Publishing website design and development is based in the Atlanta suburb of Dunwoody. Initial consultations are free of charge and by appointment only. All design work and pricing is customized for each client. Visit for further information.

(DUNWOODY, GA June 5, 2007) SDOC Publishing announced today their first charitable corporate sponsorship. According to owner Adrienne Duncan, "Atlanta has been good to SDOC Publishing. The community welcomed our company with open arms and now it is our turn to be good corporate citizens and support our new home in return."

SDOC Publishing contributed custom graphics and website maintenance to a fundraising gala for The Sullivan Center, a privately-funded agency specializing in "homelessness prevention".

"What is so innovative about the Sullivan Center is that they are a proactive group that intervenes with families and individuals in crisis before they hit bottom and lose their homes. In addition, there is only so much money to go around and only so many people they can help. But the number of applications is increasing. To assist those people, their September fundraiser is absolutely critical."

Duncan found a niche in a unique challenge: website design, stationery design and a new logo identity for the gala, themed "A Garden Party: Planting the Seeds of Hope". "When web imaging or print imaging are done independently, the job is simple," she says. "But we managed to develop an attractive presence that was adapted to all print materials and the website all on a very tight deadline. We are proud of our work and certainly hope it benefits The Sullivan Center."

Watch for SDOC's handiwork in press materials to be distributed in the next couple of weeks. The website is now live and can be visited at

(DUNWOODY, GA June 30, 2006) SDOC Publishing today announced their completion of a new website for the Atlanta Alumnae Panhellenic Association (AAPA). AAPA represents the Metro Atlanta chapter of the National Panhellenic Conference.

"Most people don't realize that the 26 Greek-letter sororities of the NPC are collectively, the largest womens' organization in the world," noted Adrienne Duncan, proprietor of SDOC Publishing. "There are currently almost 4 million members, providing hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships, millions of dollars in philanthropic causes, and hundreds of thousands of hours in communty service every year. That is a significant amount of influence on our culture by women."

Atlanta Alumnae Panhellenic Association provides several scholarships per year to undergraduate and graduate students and hosts leadership workshops for sorority officers. The main event each year is the Recruitment Roundtable, where women headed to college can learn about the sorority recruitment process. The new website can be seen at

The AAPA website represents an interactive vehicle for potential sorority members as well as collegiate and alumnae members. A database-driven calendar organizes information about the 26 sororities nationally, and the local activities of the 20 represented by AAPA. For fundraising and other special events, all documents are displayed in Adobe FlashPaper® format. Duncan mentioned that the next feature to appear will be an online registration for Recruitment Roundtable in March 2007.

"Being the webmaster for this type of site means that I answer to almost three-dozen supervisors," says Duncan. "Each sorority's delegate, plus the Executive Board, plus several committees all have an interest in having their information posted and it's usually time-sensitive. My key role is to make sure that all of these interests are shown together in a comprehensive form. It's a wonderful challenge that all of the women of AAPA are very happy with."
