As foreshadowed in the August update, the transformation of our web presence will be progressively released over coming months.
Before the end of September, this will involve a responsive design homepage and MyACS section for ACS members. Not all pages will be cut-over to the new Content Management System with immediate effect. To effect this change our website will be brought down at 5:30pm EST on Friday, September 23. The website will be restored by 9am EST on Monday September 26. We want to thank you for your patience during this time. We will have staff available to answer queries via Twitter
while the website is down.
Naturally during the first phases of release we will adopt a break-fix strategy. This will be accompanied by collecting feedback from day one on member experience, and we’ll constantly seek feedback over coming months.
We are committed to delivering the road map that has been planned, and will take stock of all feedback received in January 2017 before determining improvement areas.
Our business strategy has been developed in response to member feedback, however we are cognisant that as more and more members utilise particular features and provide feedback, we may need to pivot 2-3 times in the first twelve months, tailoring functionality to best meet member need.
We can’t wait to take this journey with you, and look forward to providing the infrastructure that allows members to participate in communities of practice and build their networks across the country, and indeed internationally.
On behalf of the ACS Digital Transformation Project Team we want to thank you for your support as we build a new experience for you.
