Updates coming – and note for subscribers

Posted: July 17, 2014 by Jason Haslam in Website info

Hello all,

As you may have seen in ACCUTE’s latest newsletter (PDF), we here at the Dalhousie office are going to be making some changes to the appearance of the website.  The Alberta office did some tremendous work in designing the new website (thanks, folks!!!), which means that we get to focus on some tidying and on content.

We plan to launch the new look in late July or early August.  Do you have any thoughts on what you’d like to see?  If so, drop us a line.  Also, as is common with such changes, we can expect a few glitches here and there as we work on the site.  If you see any, please let us know.

And, on the subject of unfortunate glitches, a final note for our wonderful subscribers: those of you who subscribe to the website through email or RSS may have had a few notifications today that led you nowhere.  These happened as we were testing out some new structures.  Those posts will be up eventually, but for now we apologize for adding to your inbox.  (Don’t subscribe?  If you want to get notification of new posts through email, see the bottom left of the page.)
