On April 1st, 2017, Sail/Voile New Brunswick launched some changes to our technology infrastructure in the aim to create a more cooperative and informed experience for all sailors in New Brunswick.
As many of you may have already noticed or been notified about, our website is brand new this year and is a well overdue upgrade to our organization. Further to the website, other changes are highlighted below.
Our Website: Not only is the look of the website new and modernized, but also under a new domain (www.sailnewbrunswick.ca), moving from our old domain (nbsailing.nb.ca) to represent the current name of the organization. The website is divided into easy to navigate categories and contains all of the information needed.
Our Registration and Payment System: Forgoing the past method of physical registration forms and payments via check and/or cash. We are now set up with the new Checklick Storefront system for all our our registration purposes, which allows us to accept online payment processing which accepts Visa, MasterCard and Amex. We will be using this as the sole method of registration going forward. View the storefront at: sailnewbrunswick.checklick.com
Our Facebook Page: Many of our members are currently a part of the Facebook group held by the organization currently. In an attempt to gain more exposure and reach a broader audience, we have moved the organization to a Facebook page. The existing group will remain open for sailors to collaborate with each other, however all official communication will be done through the new 'Page'. Visit the new page here: facebook.com/sailnewbrunswick/.
New Twitter Account: In an effort to increase our social media presence we have created a Twitter account, view it here: twitter.com/nbsailing.
New Instagram Account: In an effort to increase our social media presence we have created an Instagram account, view it here: instagram.com/nbsailing.
Dropbox Resource Folder for Instructors: In order to maintain standards of coaching within the province, we must ensure that all coaches have the same access to reference materials. Most coaches have already been added to this folder, if you have not and you are a coach in good standing please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
