Using Joomla! to build a branch web site
This is just a stub. If you've got the skills to flesh it out, please feel free.
2-Tier Software has helped some states/branches jump into Joomla!, so before taking the plunge (the pool looks inviting, but the water's cold!), check on the webmanagers list for someone who feels that it's been successful. 2-Tier isn't accepting new clients at this point.
Using WordPress to build a branch web site
Just a stub at this point.

Sub-Domains
Techniques for recruiting/training a replacement
The Sub-Domains thread has a component where encouraging branches to use subdomains of the state site may be a way to identify/recruit/mentor replacement web managers. But this seems like an important enough question to warrant its own thread.
