(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."

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 July 27, 2005) SDOC Publishing, Dunwoody's newest web design firm, announced the re-launch of the website for a Dunwoody-based medical firm.

SDOC Publishing is now the official webmaster for Documentation, Coding, and Billing Accuracy, or, DCBA Inc, a physician-owned consulting firm specializing in medical chart coding. The site is available at

"DCBA's website is what I called a 'diamond in the rough'' website", says SDOC's founder and proprietor, Adrienne Duncan. "The basic appearance elements were good - I recycled some of them - the site just needed some organization and consistency. Medical-related content is very familiar territory for SDOC Publishing and it felt good to get back in that field"

"Some organization" is an understatement. DCBA's president, Dr Robert Gold, is a proflic writer who is published in several industry publications. He ordered his entire library of material formatted for the website. That ends up being several hundred articles and the collection continues to grow. In addition, certain sections of the library are limited to "members-only" access, requiring even more care in development.

Duncan continues, "DCBA is an example of a multi-functional site with enormous amounts of information. Such a site requires development of aids to the visitor." Duncan describes these aids as a customized search engine, and login access to private areas. "There is even a customized discussion forum with several access layers," she adds.

"A little planning up front goes a long way in the future," Duncan concludes. "If you centralize your navigation and logically organize your content, you can scale your site infinitely. DCBA Inc has a bright future ahead with new clients and new visitors and SDOC is proud to be a key element of that growth."

(DUNWOODY, GA October 26, 2004) SDOC Publishing, Dunwoody's newest web design firm, announced the official launch of a Dunwoody community website for the Briers North Subdivision. Residents and visitors alike can learn more about Briers North at

Briers North is a unique and highly sought-after subdivision on the eastern border of Dunwoody, GA. In addition to being a quiet and safe neighborhood, the community's homes are each inspired by Victorian design, lending a peaceful, main-street feel.

"Most communities and subdivisions do not have a web presence. Those that do are often either designed by amateurs, or are run by cheap wholesale templates that are bland and boring," said Adrienne Duncan, proprietor of SDOC Publishing and the designer of the site. "This neighborhood is absolutely unique: the architecture, the community spirit, the holiday celebrations. You can tell that each home and family is a labor of love. The community deserved to have a highly customized site that reflects that."

Duncan reports that in addition to the Victorian-inspired design of the site, the best part of the site is what is not visible. "Most of this site is run from an interactive database with hidden administrative functions. Plus, residents can enter a private area where they can access a community directory, financial statements, private announcements and issues. It's like having a 24-hour online town hall!"

Timing was critical on this site as well. Briers North is most famous in metro Atlanta and north Georgia for its spectacular Halloween celebration. The community expects four thousand visitors to trick-or-treat on October 31. "I only had a couple of weeks to get this site to an acceptable state for all of the residents. Some of the Halloween information is critical for visitors and it had to be live. Failure was not an option."

Duncan says she will be available to help with site upgrades, but the day-to-day maintenance can be done by the volunteer committees and residents themselves. "Everything here is self-supporting. Individual users can access and update their information, and the administrators manage the content. It makes life much easier for everyone."

"Now we just need to make sure there's enough candy to go around on Sunday!"
