The National Demolition Association (NDA), Doylestown, Pennsylvania, has redesigned its website, www.demolitionassociation.com to make it more valuable to association members. The NDA describes the site as having “greatly improved user-friendly features, streamlined content and a mobile-response design that allows the same site to be accessed from desktop, tablet or mobile phone.” Clear visual navigation cues ensures that no information is more than three clicks away, according to the association.
“The new NDA website was designed with NDA members – and the many publics we serve – in mind,” says Kim Wieland, NDA’s director of member services. "In the development phase, we worked with our members to learn what was most important to them. The goal was to make the site convenient to use, as well as a reflection of NDA's role as the global source of 'all things demolition.'"
NDA members are able to enter the website through a members-only portal that delivers a more enhanced viewing experience, giving them access to information not available to the general public. The section is integrated into the main website so they no longer need to navigate through a second site.
The redesigned website includes weekly updates of industry news; a link to the NDA blog that allows members to be current on regulatory and compliance issues; and the latest on safety, environmental and business topics. The NDA Twitter feed @NDAMakingWay is prominently displayed on the landing page as well as all internal pages, delivering the news as it happens.
On the NDA’s home page is an online directory of members and associate members and their specialized skills. The directory can be tailored to searches in particular states or according to the services or products needed. In addition, the quick find tab at the top of the each website page allows members to gain access to a state regulation resource locator and to find concrete and asphalt crushing facilities, C&D landfills and mixed C&D waste processors by state.
“We view the many enhancements and additions to the website as a key member service for those companies belonging to our organization,” Wieland says. “The goal is to let various stakeholders such as municipalities, commercial real estate developers or government regulators easily find the information they are looking for about the industry, the NDA and our membership.”
Information from NDA’s educational webinars, including registration forms, is available on the site. And as part of the website redesign, more information and resources are now available on industry topics including disaster response, environmental stewardship and community development.
