Mobile Friendly Public Website »
Why do we need this?
New members are the life blood of the Guild and the public website at GNHW.org is our store front for these potential new members. Members join because they see us as an attractive, relevant and professionally run organization. Our store front is key.
The public website was built for desktop viewing. We need to adapt our design to optimize for BOTH desktop and mobile access to meet the growing use of mobile devices.
Visits from phone and tablet users are currently at just under 40% and rising, A couple of years ago, this number was around 20%.
The member site you are currently viewing is built for mobile. The Guild's public site is not.
The Guild's primary mission is education. We are an IRS recognized 501(c)3 non-profit. Any donations made towards this project will be restricted for its use only.
