STMA unveiled its new website during the STMA Conference last week. A 12-month project, the website underwent a total redesign in look and feel, and in functionality.

Sporting a contemporary design, the site is now mobile responsive, search friendly, and its updated technical content is easy to find and download.

A new feature is the Job Board, which is searchable and available on the public side of the website for anyone to view the listings. Open positions can now be posted through an online form by members and non-members. There will be a fee of $60 assessed to non-members to post an open position; this automatically includes an STMA Affiliate membership.

Another new feature is an interactive map of STMA’s affiliated chapters. Click on a state and the chapter that serves that geographic area will pop up. Within the chapter micro-site, chapter administrators will find helpful information all in one place to better manage their responsibilities.

Members who log in will experience a seamless transition from the public side—to members only—to public: the same look and feel for both, with only logging-in one time.

The STMA Technology Team, led by Matt Anderson, CSFM, guided the development of the new website. Members of that team are Chris Bell, Jason Craft, CSFM, Grant Davisson, Ben Polimer, Jeff Salmond, CSFM, and Edgar Vallejo. Kenzie Jay, STMA Sales and Marketing Manager, led the project at Headquarters. The website redevelopment was funded, in part, by the 2018 membership dues increase with additional funding committed by the STMA Board of Directors from the reserve fund.

For the immediate future, STMA will be adding more video content.
