Navigating the website
While our website may not look completely new, we have updated the navigation in order to make information easier to find and access. Here, we will review the new navigation of the website and where to find the pages you access most often.
The new navigation contains five main sections. We have completely done away with the concept of separate public and members websites – as you may remember, the pages you could access would change based on whether you were on the public’s side or the member’s side.
Now, all pages are visible through the same navigation whether or not you are logged in. However, some pages can only be accessed by members that are logged in. If you come across one of these pages, you will be prompted to log in to view the content. If you are not a member, you will not be able to view the content.
Navigation was built using web usability best practices and was User Experience (UX) tested with a group of members. The valuable feedback provided by these members helped us streamline the navigation, so all information is easy to find.
