I’m Dan Dan and I’m the webmaster for HumanistSG. This doesn’t just mean that I run the IT system day in day out – our system is actually fairly mature for an NGO so there isn’t much to troubleshoot.
I see myself as more of the guru for all things digital for HumanistSG. I collate and send out the monthly electronic newsletter to our members and subscribers. I am also constantly thinking of ways to improve the digital experience for our members and users.
For example, how can we ensure a smooth membership registration and renewal process? As different people sign up/ renew their membership at various times of the year, there has to be an easy way to track all these users for the Society and the users themselves. Unfortunately, a good solution would cost money (which we don’t have a lot of!) so I’m thinking of more cost-efficient ways to get this done.
Being webmaster also ties in very nicely with my current degree at SMU – I’m a final year student in Bsc Information Systems (Information Assurance & Security), so I get to put what I learn in school to use here.
I’ve been with the society for over five years now and volunteered on and off as time permits. I do this because I see that HumanistSG provides a unique community for all the non-religious folks in Singapore. I’m proud of how the society has grown from our initial days as an unregistered group. We are now a well-run organisation and looking for more people to continue this great work we do.
