Welcome to the new NSMBA web site! As you might have noticed, a few things have changed. To get started with 2010 we’ve made a few modifications to the web site. We’d like to invite you to sit back, grab a beverage of your choice, and take it for a spin.

There are a few big changes for us, so if you notice any issues, or have any ideas, comments, suggestions, or concerns, please feel free to e-mail them to webmaster@nsmba.ca. Hit the read more link for details about the changes.

  • Domain Change: We have changed from using nsmba.bc.ca, to using nsmba.ca. This should simplify things a bit, making it easier to remember and find the web site. The nsmba.bc.ca address will still work (it’ll forward you here), and any e-mails addressed to addresses@nsmba.bc.ca will automatically get forwarded to the proper address@nsmba.ca (though if you want to be totally proper, you can update your address book as well).
  • New Web Site Platform: The new site is based on Drupal, a widely used open-source content management system. The real strength in Drupal over other platforms lies in its ability to be extended. Within a very short timeframe we have already managed to integrate many custom functions into the site.
  • New Membership Signup & Management Platform: CiviCRM is a constituent relationship management platform, which will allow us to streamline our membership signup and administration. It also provides a much easier solution for us to send out e-mail updates, and also the potential to manage event signup online.
