Pardon Our New (Spectacular, Amazing, Life-changing) Website

Welcome to ULA’s newly designed website. It is spectacular, amazing, and life-changing, but it is also new. That is why I can describe it as such and still ask your patience and pardon. Anna Neatrour and Barbara Hopkins have spent the last six months migrating and formatting all of the pages from the old Drupal website to a new WordPress website. They have created new function and magnificent form that moves ULA’s website forward. On that note, wherever you are in the world please stand and give Anna and Barbara a round of applause!

WordPress is more dynamic and easier to use. The ULA website has many hands involved at times and this new site will minimize the learning curve.

If you are someone that should have access to the backend of the site, please contact Barbara Hopkins for access. There will be small changes and bugs that need fixed as we go forward. If there is anything you come across please do let Barbara know. More than anything though, thanks to Anna and Barbara! Enjoy the new site!
