As some of you may have heard, the owner of the company that hosts our website, EasyNetSites.com (ENS), has run into legal problems. The result is that ENS will only be hosting websites through the end of June 2021 (at best).
Our Website Committee is exploring options: the possible purchase of EasyNetSites by another business, moving website to WildApricot.com , building a WordPress website on a new hosting service site, etc.
If you, or someone you know, has experience with current website technology and would be interested in joining our Website Committee, please contact Lisa Christopherson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: ENS has announced that they will not be closing, and a company is buying ENS. Purchase is expected to be complete in March 2021. It was just announced on March 1, 2021, that as of that day, ENS has been purchased by Blue Crab Software.
