So what’s new (Last updated 14 December 2023)
Update to how events look and run.
- Events are our biggest shift, employing the benefits of a powerhouse eventing platform, Eventbrite. The update allows us more flexibility, better reporting and the opportunity to enhance member value.
Submissions, News and Press Release
- Our delivery mechanism for submissions has been updated, moving it from a purely PDF based deliver to an hybrid delivery. This helps us with Google search and should have an impact on our digital reputation.
- Press releases are now available immediately, no longer after a 3 hour wait. This allows us to be agile in the market and make sure our messaging is relevant.
- News is a more managed and curated section now, with more engagement opportunity and the ability to keep members more up to date than ever before.
Revamped Home Page
- Our home page has been restructured to give you access to the important things first. Click through our lead banners to see what the latest is across the APGA.
- The new APGA site has an updated navigation, allowing for a more streamlined journey though the website.
Updated Members Only Sections
- For those logging into the site as members, the members only section has changed. You will find a few more resources behind the member wall, easily accessible as soon as you are logged in, with more to come.
Updated Training Page
- We have a new Training page to highlight all the opportunities available through 2024 for training.
