Yes, it’s time. Your webmaster is sitting with Steve Batah, president of the NAA right this minute. “Chris,” he just said, “let’s get a post onto the website reminding people that our first NAA meeting of the 2015 season is on Wednesday (not Monday!), May 20th at 7pm at the Dorval Community Centre!”
We’ll have the agenda here on the website at least one week before the meeting.
In the meantime, are you following us on Twitter?
We’ve had a good run at getting our historic results up to date. You can now see all the results that we have on record back to 2007. Where results are missing that’s usually because the final results for that sport were never received from that VP for that year.
Yes, that’s the NAA_Notices Twitter feed on the right side of the page. We expect that up to the minute news for the NAA will be happening on Twitter during the season and you can keep up to date or even Tweet us. Just follow us on twitter at: https://twitter.com/NAA_Notices!
Historic results are continuing to be restored to the new site format. We are now complete back through 2009 and ultimately will have at least some results back as far as 2005. See NAA Historic Results for a complete index of results now available on the site.
It’s taken some effort, but we are standing by and ready for the 2015 NAA season! Historic results will be added continually but the last 2 years are already up and viewable. There are over 20,000 pictures in the Photo Gallery and we’ve even restored photo gallery entries for Elm Park that go back to the 1990s.
The menus are all active and you can even see our new Twitter Feed on the right hand side of our home page! Follow us @NAA_Notices on Twitter for up to the minute news!
Our new platform will make it easier to feature new and richer content and update the site much more effectively.
Just after the 2014 NAA season was complete, the NAA site was hacked rather roughly by person or persons unknown and I had no choice but to dig in, take our backups and start re-building. The effort is extensive but the work is well underway. I’ve elected to move the NAA site to the well known (and more automatically updated) WordPress which is what you’re looking at right now.
The website updates are underway but there’s a lot to update! The general format of our new website home is complete and the calendar and constitution are up and ready along with key files like the Executive list and the Hiring list. I’ve started adding the pages and menus for our other work but just to give you an example of what needs doing, there are over 20,000 pictures in the photo gallery alone!
There are also several hundred pages of results which I’m in the process of building into files that can be posted on the website. Over the coming weeks you’re going to see fairly constant updates as the content gradually is translated into the new formats so don’t despair! We’ll be ready for the season.
Contact me directly at email@example.com if you’re looking for something very specific but otherwise please be patient as we get our home back in order!
We are taking the this off-season opportunity to rework the NAA site completely. Please be patient as we get the look and feel right and then migrate all of our old data into the site.
