Colorado Nonprofit Association invites members and nonmembers to explore their newly redesigned website, launched July 1. Designed with the user in mind, the new site offers improved navigation and accessibility to resources for Colorado’s nonprofit community. Additionally, members now receive exclusive access via the site’s new member-only portal.
Resources for Members
Everything our members need is now accessible through the website’s member-only portal,” explains Colorado Nonprofit Association Knowledge Coordinator, Melanie Tsuchida. “It includes a brand new Knowledge Center, member listserv and help desk, making it a ‘one-stop-shop’ for members.
Using personalized login information, members can update their organization’s listing directly on the site. General information and hyperlinks for member organizations can be added, offering an easier way for members to connect with each other and their community.
Engaging Nonprofit Supporters
The site also offers a way for nonprofit professionals and supporters to remain aware of news within the nonprofit sector with sections like “Nonprofit News” and “Policy Updates” that provide easy-to-read articles.
On par with the latest technologies, the site is completely mobile friendly and does not require Adobe Flash to use, making it even easier for nonprofit professionals to stay connected.
The new website design also highlights trainings and events, encouraging individuals to get involved. For those unsure of where to start, bright images and clear graphics prompt ways to “Build your Knowledge,” “Become a Member,” or “Engage in Advocacy.”
In addition to benefits available for current members, the site remains open to the general public, particularly those looking to enter the nonprofit workforce. Organizations can post job openings directly to the site, where interested professionals can easily search for suitable positions.
The improved search functions in our job board make it easier for those looking for a job in the nonprofit sector to find an opening. We’ve added more specific locations and organization types,” notes Tsuchida.
The goal is to improve the benefits of the site to members while still offering nonprofit information and service connections to the public. A variety of members are highlighted “In the Spotlight” on a monthly basis as a way to recognize individuals and acknowledge their impact in our communities.
