RE: Georgia APCO Website
On behalf of the Georgia APCO Board of Officers, I am pleased to announce that the State Chapter has a newly redesigned online presence.
Realizing that the previous website was over four years old and operating on dated functionality, the Board of Officers voted in December of 2020 to approve an update of the website.
The new website (www.gaapco.com) has an overall design that better matches the Chapter theme. The homepage features images from Georgia’s own telecommunicators and Emergency Communications Centers. In addition to a more user-friendly layout and improved navigation, the website also has expanded capabilities like pop-up news alerts and newsletter integration. The new website is mobile-friendly and has improved accessibility and loading speed.
In addition to the new website, we have also started using MailChimp as our new mass e-mail program. This will allow us to better communicate with our membership in sending announcements and important information.
We are excited to launch the new website and e-mail platform and know it will serve the Chapter well in years to come.
If you have any feedback or questions about the website, please reach out to any of the Board of Officers.
Jonathan L. Jones, RPL, CPE
