Hello all! We recently made the decision to move to a more "one stop shop" so rather than run a blog on WordPress, we've decided to use the News feature on the new website as our blog-ish place. Please, still send your announcements into the Society's email so we can share your news and announcements! Make sure to change your RSS feeds and bookmarks as we'll be shutting the WordPress site down within the next few weeks!
The new website is a work in progress still as we work on getting all the information up that you need and making sure the new forms and functionality are working. Once we're sure things are working like clockwork, we'll plan on doing a series of "How To" posts to help you learn the new site!
Now, onto the news!
