.What’s New on the Web?

 Here are the newest changes to our Website

Before we go through the tabs I picked up some questions at the Fall Conference on confusion that our web provider seems to have created. Our Web Platform is based on software that we buy from an outside vendor, then we put our information on that platform. From time to time they get ideas on how to make the platform better. Sometimes you will notice that when you click on a file (such as the registration form for Mid-Winter) you will see a very small version of the form. It is not usable as they have made it a graphic. To get where you want to be just click on that small graphic and you will be rewarded by getting where you wanted to go. Sometimes more doesn’t make it easier for the user!     Phil Paul, Webmaster

In the Upcoming Events Tab:

All the material on the upcoming Mid-Winter Meeting has been posted (11-1-2017)
