If you are planning to go and would like to meet, could you let me know of your preferred day so that I can get a formal letter out by snail mail to all 26 members to tell them about the meeting.

Would any one be interested in giving a short talk or bring along some material to show? Please let me know. Contact Richard Judge at 262-554-7958.

BNAPS has been busy the last few months working to bring our website to more modern standards. While our efforts are not fully ready to replace our current website, you can get the look and feel of the new website if you visit our BNAPS new-look website.

Please note that this is a work in progress and some items may not work correctly at this time. A presentation of the new design will be given at BNAPEX in Charlottetown by Robin Harris of Adminware Corporation who is working on the redesign. The member database is running, so if you choose to try the members area, use the Get Password link to set yourself up. You will need to provide your BNAPS membership number and email address to get your temporary password.

Comments can be forwarded to the webmaster email link on the website. As this is a preview and all the web team will be at BNAPEX, there will be no changes done in this test until after the convention.
