Greetings, CCN members and site visitors. This is Joanne Leonard, your new web administrator.
I'm sure you've noticed that the CCN web site looks a lot different now. The new site is being hosted by a company called Wild Apricot, which specializes in software for member-based organization. We've customized it for CCN's needs.
For a few months, we were running the old CCN site and the new site in parallel. Now the chemconsultants.org link delivers you directly to this new site.
CCN members should find their profiles on this new site with the same information as on the old site, now in a structured format. When you log in, you will find a link at the top of the page which will allow you to edit your profile information. This is a self-service site. You don't have to contact a steering committee member or the web administrator to update your information (unless you're having a problem or otherwise need a human intervention). You can do it yourself.
Also now automated are new memberships, renewals, and meeting registrations and for your convenience, you can pay by credit card.
We also hope to create more value added features for members in the not too distant future.
I'll continue to blog posts here to tell you more about the site features and things of interest. Blog posts are meant to be participatory things, and if you are a member and are logged in, you should be able to post comments, so feel free to do that.
This blog is available for members to share information and ideas, and to interact online as a community. CCN officers and steering committee might choose to use the blog to give you information or to solicit feedback. CCN members might choose to share useful information related to their specialty or about the field in general, or they might just want to use this as a place to chat. How the organization chooses to use the blog is entirely up to you.
So welcome to the new site and thanks for reading.
With Warm Regards,
