Your new website NCNGA.org has officially been launched!!!
Yes, you will notice a major facelift, however, you also have *significantly* powerful technology under the hood.
The first thing you should do is use the new Legislative feature. In a matter of a few clicks and a few seconds, you can influence your elected officials to your advantage. Here is how:
Step 1. Click “Legislative” in the navigation bar.
Step 2. Enter your address on the left to find contact info for your elected officials.
Step 3. Copy and paste information from the right into a message to your elected officials.
It is just that simple! Make sure you are receiving NCNGA newsletters or following NCNGA social media for “Legislative Alerts” so you know when to take action. Make sure your friends and family use this Legislative feature also to support your cause! To give you an idea of the value of this feature, a comparable service, CAPWIZ, costs nearly $5000 per year. Your new Legislative feature pulls from open data sources, which means your Association has no ongoing expense to use it. This is a huge win for you and the NCNGA!
Next, you will notice your Tarheel Guardsman views much more elegantly on the site. It resembles flipping pages of a real magazine. In the past we had slow loading .pdf files, then we tried Slideshare which was promising but turned out confusing and spammy. This feature greatly enhances your Tarheel Guardsman reading experience.
Another major improvement is responsive design. Responsive design is a new technology that allows NCNGA.org to display optimally on your device, whether it is a mobile phone, tablet, desktop monitor or flat screen tv.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is another highly upgraded feature of your new site. Your developers, Semper Fi Web Design, are arguably the most reputable SEO experts in the world, based on the success of their All-In-One SEO Pack WordPress plugin, which is one of the most downloaded WordPress plugins of all time with over 17,806,355 downloads! Your content will be discovered in exponentially more search results than ever before.
Security has been greatly enhanced on NCNGA.org and will be maintained by Semper Fi Web Design.
Semper Fi Web Design is founded by a Marine Corps veteran and the company is very active in the WordPress developer community. Kudos to Semper Fi Web Design! They have helped the NCNGA in a major way!
Note: We are switching over to a new email delivery service. You may have received an email with some outdated information recently. We apologize! Please disregard and bear with us as we work the hiccups out of the new system. We anticipate the bugs will be worked out of the new email delivery system by next week.
