Custom Glossary of Professions Utilizing Drupal Taxonomies

One of the most challenging areas the organization has had to deal with annually has been distinguishing the roles of different professions- especially as many have gray areas that overlap in responsibilities.  Each year during the renewal campaign, individual members are allowed to identify themselves in up to three fields of specialty.  A comprehensive list of titles/specialties appears on the application, but without any distinction. Similarly, the old static website had general descriptions for groups of specialties, but not individual descriptions. With the move to have membership renewal and profiles managed online, I suggested we use Drupal’s built-in taxonomy features to clarify and define each role for both members and parents seeking services.
