Keith, you may want to look into a content management system like Joomla
(joomla.com).  A wiki can still be a part of the larger CMS.  With
Joomla you can also have calendars, RSS feeds, surveys, forums, etc., in
addition to wikis.
 Take a good look at what your content/information needs are to decide
if a wiki alone will do the job or if you need something more.
