The RES website has a had a redesign! As part of the team that originally moved our site to Wild Apricot, some time has passed since it was chosen as our hosting platform. There has since been a massive shift to responsive designs in websites and the RES has become increasingly more online oriented with the birth of our electronic edition of Rochester Engineer magazine. Greg Gdowski has taken the initiative to change the site's theme to one called Kaleidoscope Redwood that I am certain you will find more friendly to navigate.
As far as new features…
The site is now mobile friendly. This means the menus and content will change appearance to look better on your phones and tablets. We know that many of you are heavy users of mobile devices.
Hopefully you will find the layout easier on the eyes. The content is bordered by colors to help make it easier to transition from section to section. Some of the subpages are in better shape than others so please stay tuned. By all means, look down past my ugly mug on the home page to Ashley Doerzbacher's photo for a more pleasing experience. We couldn't be happier to have her as this year's host for the Gala.
The site features more regularly updated content from recent months. In addition to past magazine editions and an electronic calendar, there are Gala sponsorship updates, a "Today" message, popular historical minutes from Lee Loomis, and much more.
A special thanks goes out to those of you that took the opportunity to fill out the Rochester Engineering Society's survey. We have over 100 responses. Since the holidays may have been hectic for many of you, we will leave the survey open for a while longer. If you have not already done so, please take this chance to complete your responses.
Thank you for taking time for the Rochester Engineering Society
