New AMS Implemented & Dues Renewal

Association News
The EAP Chief Webmaster, after discussion with several board members of his concerns with the existing association management, transitioned to a new AMS effective November 25, 2019. While the previous AMS offered many features and capabilities, it was free and self-hosted, therefore updates to its capabilities had to be managed in-house. Training on the system also posed challenging as only a few key features were used and navigation was cumbersome. After identifying the primary needs, a new paid system was identified and implemented. All EAP members must renew their membership using the new system, which includes the previous history they had under our legacy. Instructions are contained on the renewal page for how to complete this process. The board thanks everyone for their patience during this transition.
