Home Accents Today Staff -- Home Accents Today, December 11, 2012
The newly refocused WithIt.org, complete with robust, timely and engaging tools and members-only exclusives, has launched, promising members a new resource for timely insights, ideas exchange and professional mentoring.
"In our 15th year, WithIt's story is now told digitally across a variety of platforms, and our new web site reflects the needs of our diverse and geographically separated community," said WithIt 2012 President Julia Rosien, principal of Social North. "We need to meet our members where they live, and the new web site connects us seamlessly to each other and the social media channels we use."
WithIt.org's new Member Café includes articles written by WithIt members and useful professional links. Meanwhile, the Student Café offers a find-a-mentor feature and a knowledge center that offers practical information for students at the early stages of their careers.
Other new online tools include: a regions-focused hub, where WithIt's regional chapters can network with local members; a newsroom, including event photos; a "speak-up" section where WithIt members blog on leadership-focused topics; a searchable members directory; social media feeds; and more.
"WithIt's new web site is the culmination of hundreds of hours of planning and hard work, and we're very grateful to the individuals and companies that supported us," said Rosien. "Now, the fun and sharing begins, and we're eager to showcase and connect our members and potential members online."
WithIt.org's relaunch was made possible through the support of Wray Ward, which provided the graphics and layout, and Adesso Inc., which sponsored the development and programming of the site. For more information, contact Sara Lyke at director@WithIt.org.
