In this interactive session, we will discuss the 2013 redesign of a large nonprofit association’s website, database, and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). By attending this session, you will:
- Understand which aspects of the redesign were successful.
- Gain insights about processes that should have been handled differently.
- Learn about the association’s plans for another website redesign to address members’ concerns, fix design flaws, and account for our changing demographics.
The presentation will include recommendations for nonprofit association staff who are interested in updating their websites and databases, and it will also provide IT workers with insights about nonprofit association leaders’ priorities and needs.
