Times change. While the old website had served us pretty well for a number of years, technology continues to develop and with this redesign we will be able to take advantage of the most current tools to make our advocacy most effective and carry our message forward. We've been hard at work on the new site and hope that your find your experience with it both user friendly and enjoyable. Our goal with was to make the information that we give to you easier to find and more timely. Though we did want to update the “look and feel” of our website, our primary concerns were about usability and user experience.
One enhancement is overall navigation of the site. We have grouped information in a way that you will find what you need quickly. We have eliminated unnecessary information and have updated much of the information throughout the website. Another enlacement is the new and expanded Calendar of Events.
We’re still tweaking a few things but all the wrinkles will be ironed out shortly. We welcome any questions, comments and suggestions.
