New Web Site
By Greg Young
Welcome to the new ANS web site. We are transitioning the site to a new home on the Club Express platform. The Club Express platform is centered around the needs of clubs and associations. That makes it easy to change our design as needed and to add features and capabilities that we've needed for some time or those features we don't yet know that we need. What you see is a work in progress. There is a lot of potential for growth with the help of member contributions and for those that want to take a more active role as an admin/coordinator for various functions. This platform allows us to spread the load, involve more people and make the experience richer for all of us.
Obviously the design has changed... and it may change again when we get some feedback from you and involve folks with more artistic ability than yours truly. All the content from the previous site is here. (I tried my best. Let me know what's missing or not working.) We will add more content over time.
The Member Only section is a big change. Once we are fully transitioned, our membership will be managed online. New members and renewals will be able to sign-up and pay their dues online. Each member will have the ability to log into the site with their own ID. That will let them maintain their profile info, provide content in the form of photos, blogs, documents, etc., participate in forums and, importantly, access Member Only content. The menu will literally change when you log in. Until we get the member database loaded, you can log in using the same userid and password that you would have used on the old site. Please don't modify the profile of that psuedo-member as it will be shared by all.
Until we are fully transitioned, the URL https://www.navionsociety.org is being redirected to and will show as ANS.clubexpress.com. Should you want or need to access the old site, it is still accessible at https://www.navionsociety.org/old/.
As I mentioned, this is a work in progress. Some new features appear on the menus but are not yet working. Some of the old content was brought over as is for expediancy but will be refreshed and reformatted over time. Let me know what you like and don't like, what additions you'd like to see, what priority you'd place on any changes. I'm available through the links on the contact page or at email@example.com.
