April Fools’ Day! + A Real Update about Our Website Redesign

Submitted by bethany on Wed, 04/01/2015 - 1:11pm

IT Director Karl and I have been dreaming about this little April Fools’ Day prank for over a year. We brought in our Drupal consultant Mark Burgess to create some funhouse-style CSS and asked Membership Director Megan to contribute some of her signature bad puns and goofy jokes to the April Fools’ Day beta launch announcement blog post.

Karl and Marketing & Publications Director Joleen give their updates.
