Over the next several months, AAMP will be working with a web development company to redesign the current www.aamp.com site.
AAMP will be working with Pennsylvania-based design company Mile 6 to create a modern, visual and exciting new look to the website. In addition, the site will be optimized to allow for easy viewing on tablet and smartphone devices.
“The new website will be responsive and mobile-friendly, and include clearer ways of finding information and intuitive use of sub-menus, says AAMP Executive Director Chris Young.
It will also include calls to action encouraging visitors to join, and will make it clear which resources are free to view and which are for members, to highlight the benefits of joining AAMP, added Young.
An important function of AAMP’s website is the ability to gain access to the exclusive information on the member-only side of the site. With the redesign, the information will be laid out in a more accessible and easy-to-read format. Members will also be able to connect with each other easily with a newly enhanced directory.
Diana Dietz, AAMP’s communications manager, hopes the new website will allow AAMP to form better connections with the association’s members.
“We are long overdue for a redesign that reflects the work we do day-to-day,” she says. “AAMP exists to support small and very small meat processing plants so that they may prosper. Our key objective for the new site is to encourage our members to feel a strong bond with us as the organization representing and championing them.”
AAMP would like to thank the following members for their assistance in providing recommendations for the new site.
