This is it

Our new website. How do you like it? Works pretty much like the old website -- Members can join, register for events and access special tools -- but unlike the old website, it integrates fully with Facebook and Twitter, and lets members leave comments, vote on suggestions and easily recruit their friends. It's mobile friendly (the layout changes with the screen size) and every time you contribute to the discussion (such as commenting or sharing a page on Facebook) you are awarded participation points. 

What's Old

  • Member Login: Members can create accounts and provide some basic info to the group.

  • Secure Transactions: Members can manage their accounts, make donations and purchase event tickets easily online.

  • Member LevelsThe First Year Free, $15 regular and $100 Friend of RPCV/W membership options will remain.

  • Event RSVP: Members can RSVP for events with one click and receive a confirmation email. 

  • Member's Only Section: There will be a private Members section not visible to the general public.

  • Career Resources: We'll maintain the DC calendar of free events, job feed (under construction), and Linkedin portal.

What's New

  • Public Comments: Members can use the site as a forum and comment publicly.

What's Next

This site is a work in progress that will stretch into 2014 and end when the majority of our members are happy with it. Take a look around and contact Chris Robinson at publicrelations@rpcvw.org with comments, questions and offers to help. All will be gladly accepted.
