Over the lastseveral months, visitors to the ASA website have noticed a more graphically pleasing, easier-to-navigate website that reflects ASA’s new branding. ASA’s marketing partner, Warren McKenna Design Group, recently worked with ASA and ASAEF staff on the redesign of ASA’s homepage and interior pages to remove clutter and follow a responsive “mobile-first” design. Web pages are designed to resize content and rearrange items based on the device being used. In addition, pages are less cluttered than on the previous version of the site and most information has been arranged to be accessible within 1-2 clicks. In addition, the new design site allows for easier access to ASA’s social media pages.
Included with the new look is a fresher, easier-to-navigate “MY ASA”, ASA’s “members only” area on the site where members sign in using an ASA-provided username and password to access training resources, benchmarking reports such as ASA’s monthly Pulse Report, the monthly ASA Advisor, ASA’s Materials Market Digest and the Industrial Piping Division’s quarterly Commodity Reports, webinar replays and an abundance of other members-only materials. Members who are not currently accessing their “MY ASA” pages should contact Member Services Manager Bill Erfort at 630/467-0000, ext. 212 or firstname.lastname@example.org for directions on obtaining a username and password or general information.
Also included within the framework of the newly designed site is a “new look” ASA University online store. The store can easily be accessed by clicking on the shopping cart icon in the upper right corner of any website page or by going to www.asa.net/store.Visitors have the ability to select and/or purchase from the large variety of current ASA University course offerings, new courses and basically anything that a visitor might want from ASA-U’s five colleges. Website visitors also can keep up-to-date with the association’s advocacy-related activities at www.asa.net/Advocacy and with networking updates and happenings at www.asa.net/Networking.
