SMG Staff Manage Website Redesign for client, GADA
SMG is proud to announce the launch of the Generic Animal Drug Alliance's fully redesigned website at www.gadaonline.org. The new site now offers self-service member tools, the "GADA Knowledge Mine" and more!
SMG Executive Director, Kathleen DeMarco led this project. DeMarco notes:
It was a pleasure to work with GADA's volunteer leaders to create a new website that truly caters to our members' needs while providing a professional presence for our outreach efforts. I'm very excited about the 'GADA Knowledge Mine,' which is a repository of online resources including both GADA-generated as well as externally-sourced information, presentations, policy letters, white papers, and so much more. The sophisticated search tools make the Knowledge Mine extremely easy to navigate. It is a new members-only benefit that provides a lot of value to our GADA memberships.
Other new features of the website include:
Organization and Individual Member Directories — Members may now search by organization, individual name, city, state, etc. and locate detailed contact and demographic information for GADA Member representatives... a valuable peer-to-peer networking resource. Members may also use a handy "My Information" link to update their profile, add or remove Subgroup memberships, and change their login passwords.
Online Meeting Registration — GADA Members may now log in to register for GADA Member Meetings, Quarterly CVM Meetings, and other events. Once members log in, a pre-populated meeting registration form is provided for simple registration that is automatically confirmed via email.
GADA Membership Resources — In this section, members may access the GADA Bylaws, as well as the GADA Member logo digital artwork.
SMG has assisted most of our clients with website upgrades, from basic updates to complete redesigns, such as the GADA website. The importance of a properly functioning and easy-to-navigate web page should not be underestimated, as it is often the first contact a potential new member has with an association. Our experience enables us to guide our clients through the necessary steps of website maintenance and redesign with confidence.
