What new functionality we are looking for
1. Overall, better organization and consolidate content.
2. Update visual appeal.
3. Improve navigation and menu system (Drop down menus).
4. Easier maintenance of system.
5. Optimization for mobile / touch devices.
Ability to submit online forms and outreach requests.
Member access to online training materials and manuals.
Maintain ability to modify home page, and to add this ability to several other pages.
Take information from existing calendars and consolidate into a single event calendar, while maintaining reservation system.
How the new functionality will help
Our hope is that in streamlining the content and navigation within the website will improve the publicâ€™s ability to access the information necessary for the various events and activities, observing programs, meetings, site information, etc. throughout the organization. We feel this will also benefit the memberâ€™s use of the website regarding training information, training schedules and mentoring, and use of the facilities.
