Conference Committee Google Drive Docs

Get more done, together!

Google docs makes creating forms/documents/slides/spreadsheets – easy and collaborative, no matter where you are or what device you’re working from.  See others make changes in real-time.  Sit back while your edits get automatically saved in Google Drive.  No more sending endless “reply all” confusing word doc draft attachments back and fourth!  Receive and reply to comments right from your inbox.  And forget about hunting for the latest version of the file, because there is only one.
