WEB SITE: www.afrea.ab.ca
The current AFREA web site has been live since early 2009 when it was redesigned to update the look and provide easier access. Comments have been very positive with regard to its design, content management, and dedicated user applications. We continue to monitor use of the site and analyze usage detail provided by Google Analytics. In 2012, there were almost 14,000 visits to our site with just over 38,800 pageviews. Of those 14,000 visits, almost 11,000 were unique, showing there were over 3,000 views made by return visitors. The member only account registration has been slow but as we continue to work together, the need for immediate contact and content sharing will grow. The secure area is for AFREA members only and any other account applications will be disregarded and deleted. Information of a general industry and company nature is posted on the public pages of our web site accessible to everyone. The AFREA uses the internal aspects of the web site for meeting preparation - minutes, reports, and other documents are posted to the internal site for the Directors to review prior to each monthly meeting. This is the initial step to "paperless" board meetings. We also project the web site content on an overhead screen during the actual meeting thereby cutting down on the amount of printing necessary to carry out AFREA board business. At this time, we still print a few of the documents as the progression to "paperless" continues.
