The American Cycling Association recently announced that they will be moving forward with the construction of a new website. The old website which has quite some history just didn't have the ability to grow and meet the demands of the community. Insight Designs of Boulder has been selected to take on the the project, they have done other cycling related websites like Slipstream's in addition to other interestin client list
The ACA would love to hear what you think about the old website and what is or should be in the new one, Discuss!!
Below is the recent announcement
New ACA Website Coming in 2009!!
After some drastic improvements during 2008 the ACA Board of Directors has decided to take this development to a whole different level. ACA has contracted with Boulder based Insight Designs to develop an entirely new website from the ground up. Both groups are looking forward to the challenge in front of them. Insight’s Nico Toutenhoofd stated, “I’m very excited about this project as I am also a regular user of the ACA’s website. The ACA staff is looking forward to improved management of the membership database and ease of maintaining the site.
Phase 1 will last for 6-8 weeks when an entirely new database structure will be developed as the platform to built on for the foreseeable future. All current features will be available when phase 1 of the project is complete. The new ACA site administrator, Keith Nordstrom, will be filling two roles during this time frame as the ACA liaison to Insight Designs and doing everything he can to keep the current site functioning properly. In all likelihood, some 2008 site features may not be fully operational in 2009 until the new site is available.
Phase 2 of the project will take and additional 6-8 weeks. This phase will include online account management for individual members and clubs. It will include license sales and membership renewals. Additional administrative features will also be included with this phase. Member should see no visible changes while this phase is under construction.
We hope the ACA membership tolerates some of the potential short-term issues as we work diligently to expand our membership services during the next few months.
