ACA Connects Updates Website to Improve Member Access to Key Information

PITTSBURGH, June 14, 2022 – ACA Connects yesterday announced the unveiling of its updated website, complete with new tools that will improve the look and layout of the site as well as make search as easy and successful as possible at a time when ACA Connects Members will need to stay focused on the details of broadband spending programs developing in Washington, D.C. 

“The ACA Connects website has always been an immensely useful and important resource for our Members. The changes we are announcing today not only build on that tradition but add to it by providing Members with improved and more intuitive access to the critical resources that they will need to rely on as government funding of local broadband infrastructure projects ramps up,” said ACA Connects President and CEO Grant Spellmeyer, who became the association’s top official on June 1. 

The ACA Connects website serves as an important resource for our Members. For many years, it has been the go-to location where Members could find important content, such as Member Advisories, On-Demand Webinars, Press Releases, Filings, Upcoming Events, and so much more. Because the website serves as an important tool and resource for our Members, it is vital that we maintain its health, reliability, and functionality. 

ACA Connects staff, led by Digital Media Specialist Nathan Penrod, spent the past several months gaining an understanding of what additionally ACA Connects Members needed in terms of website resources. “During the research stage, we sought advice from several ACA Connects Members to better understand what we were doing well and what needed improvement on the website. In response, we focused our attention on the following: An updated Members’ Lounge, a homepage with content curated specially for Members, a more organized menu, a more functional search feature, and a more seamless mobile experience,” Penrod said. 

ACA Connects Members should find the new website appealing and intuitive – a destination that will provide the same great content that our Members rely on to run their business and serve their customers.
