If you haven’t visited www.wsba.org lately, you’re missing out! Last week we launched a redesigned homepage and events calendar. We redesigned these areas to improve user (that’s you) experience.
On the homepage, we’ve made it easier for you to get the news and info you need, all in one spot. Your old favorites like the Resources for Lawyers page, Career Center button, and the Lawyer Directory are still there, but we’ve added a rotating featured story area (tablet/mobile users — it swipes!), and feeds for upcoming events and recent blog posts. The homepage includes a link to an enhanced online version of NWLawyer as well.
We’ve also made it easier for you to access myWSBA (your membership portal) and social media from wherever you are on the site. You’ll find myWSBA in the site navigation bar, and social media links reside at the top, next to our search field. You’ll notice we’ve added a link to our YouTube channel as well.
Next, we’ve made major improvements to the online events calendar. Now you can view a list of upcoming events, select a specific date, or toggle to future or past events. You can search for an event (or page or document) using the search field at the top of every page.
Finally, we’ve launched a new Practice Transition Opportunities service. Attorneys can now list their practice for sale or transition on jobs.wsba.org. The listings can be searched by job hunters and potential buyers, just like our current job listings. The service is free to both buyers and sellers. The Practice Transition Opportunities are accompanied by 2 “one-stop shop” pages — Starting Your Legal Career and Ending Your Practice. These pages make it easier for you to access information related to either starting or ending your career, including details about buying or selling a practice. You can look forward to more ”one-stop-shops” in the future.
As the WSBA online communications specialist, I’m focused on maintaining and improving our online presence for the benefit of our members and the public. I don’t just welcome your feedback, I rely on it! So please, send me an email. Give me a call. I really do want to hear from you!
