New Site Launch!

Welcome to the new website!

We have done a major overhaul of our website, giving it a new look and streamlining a lot of the navigation.

We’ve tried hard to make the new site accessible on all devices and easy to use, but we recognize that nothing is ever going to be perfect the first time around.  If you have any suggestions or concerns, if you can’t find something you’re used to seeing, or if you just want to tell us what you think of the new look, please Contact Us and let us know!

The site was supposed to go live yesterday (belated happy St. Patrick’s day!), but our loyal web minion ended up in an epic battle with an unruly database so we ended up delaying the new site launch until today to ensure everything would work.  All apologies for the extra wait.

The initial content on the website at launch is very bare-bones right now, but we’ll be fleshing it out as we go along.  We’ll be gradually migrating over the relevant parts of the old site while archiving other sections that are not longer needed until everything is where it needs to be.  Right now for site functionality, we only have membership registrations, member renewals and the eligibility lists up and running.  We’re doing some last minute work on the Nominations interface and we’ll be sure to make an announcement once that’s ready.

For now, please poke around the site and let us know if there’s anything we’ve missed.

CSFFA website to undergo major upgrade

Important update for CSFFA account holders:

We will be doing major upgrades to the CSFFA website this coming week.
For this reason, the site will be down starting on Monday, March 12th. It
will be available again on Saturday, March 17th. We are redesigning the
entire site including how nominations will be done. For this reason, you
will not be able to access your accounts or the eligibility lists during
the upgrades.

We will be sending out emails when the site is open. We also hope to
start nominations at this time too.

We thank you for your patience.
