NYCLA LAUNCHES REDESIGNED WEBSITE ON SEPTEMBER 15
SEPTEMBER 15, 2005 – NEW YORK, NY – The New York County Lawyers’ Association (NYCLA) announced the launch of its redesigned website at www.nycla.org, which will provide easier and faster navigability, enhanced visuals and a unique, customizable members-only portal, NYCLA Express.
According to Norman L. Reimer, NYCLA President, “The website redesign project was the brainchild of the Task Force on the Future of NYCLA, created two years ago to help guide NYCLA into its second century. I am pleased that NYCLA is the first bar association in the U.S. to offer a site such as NYCLA Express, which is a virtual trove of practice area content designed specifically for our members.”
NYCLA Express, the unique, members-only portal, organizes the content members need in their professional and personal lives – content in nearly a dozen practice areas – and up-to-the-minute news, newspapers from around the world, domestic and international business resources, personal resources – health, entertainment, travel, weather and much more – and a fully customizable Finance Center that enables members to track their personal investment portfolios.
The practice area section contains content in bankruptcy, civil litigation, corporate, criminal, entertainment/intellectual property, family, labor and employment, real estate/property, security and taxation laws. The goal of NYCLA Express is to be the best “executive assistant” imaginable by filtering and organizing all of the Internet content members need. Members can make NYCLA Express their homepage and customize the site by selecting up to 600 personal links from their own bookmarked sites.
NYCLA Website Redesign
NYCLA hired ICVM Group, a Long Island-based company, to redesign the site. ICVM Group provides consulting, creative design, web development and hosting services to a diverse array of prominent national and international firms and organizations.
The New York County Lawyers’ Association (www.nycla.org) was founded in 1908 as the first major bar association in the country that admitted members without regard to race, ethnicity, religion or gender. Since its inception, NYCLA has pioneered some of the most far-reaching and tangible reforms in American jurisprudence and has continuously played an active role in legal developments and public policy.
