Member's Only Section Coming Soon
For a year or more we have wanted a member's only section on our web site. Dues paying members would be able to log in, enter their demographics and answer a few question and then have access to the Member's Only Section of our Web Site. The Member's Only Section will be active under the Members tab as soon as we complete our Beta Testing.
Initially we will establish basic things like secure dues paying and private email messages about events. We will expand to educations materials both on our site and access to other programs we as a club will purchase. We are hoping to have some high quality information available.
We hope to have a portal there for selling and trading equipment much like eBay and we will also sell WAPC items such as shirts and clothes.
We are going to add vendors there with direct links to there sites. This 'click through' method is great for you as you will get the existing discount our club has in place for that vendor and their specials. And WAPC will receive a tiny portion of proceeds from the sales that we can use to better provide education and news about the advances in photography.
We of course want your input about this so when every you see a Contact Us link in the Member's Only Section, just email us your ideas and thoughts to better this part of the web site.
Also we have learned that we are not perfect in our entry of data so if you see any typos, errors or especially date changes for events, please email us with a red flag to fix that. Remember, this is your web page. Make it work for WAPC.
