The feedback has been given and the verdict is in- the CMA website stinks! Well we have listened to the feedback and are doing our level best to improve the situation. The result of our efforts is the initial site refresh that is live as of now. It is a work in progress, but we hope you will agree that it is much simpler, easy to use, and focuses on the types of things people come to cmatabor.com to learn about in the first place.
As you explore the site here is what you will find today...
A Simplified Home Page and User Experience
No longer will you find dated banners and irrelevant announcements on the home page (or anywhere on the site) and now you will find highly relevant and focused information about Mount Tabor NJ and the Camp Meeting Association. The home page won't change that often as it is the entry point for all visitors looking to find out a little bit about Mount Tabor. and the benefits afforded Leaseholders and residents.
But the page is also the jumping off point to other relevant and informative pages.
A New and Streamlined Calendar
Visit the calendar page and you can scroll til your hearts content through all of the upcoming events happening in and around Mount Tabor. We are initially focusing on events hosted by the CMA and some of our more established local groups. But over time we will look to expand the calendar to things that we think might be of interest to a broad cross-section of the community. Check back often to see whats going in Tabor and please let us know what other types of entries you would like to see in the calendar.
Links to Many Local Resources
In the resources tab you will find links to all of the local resources that we could think of as being relevant to Taborites. If you can think of more please let us know (through the Contact tab). We are eager to make this site a resource to the people of the community.
Soon enough we will also add a password protected section for Mt. Tabor Leaseholders only. The password can be obtained in the office starting in October but will also be distributed with each Assessment Invoice. We are still working out will be included in that section of the site, but likely this will be the rules and by laws of the CMA, monthly minutes, etc.
News, Announcement, Recaps, and Communications
We are going to make every effort to blog and communicate on a regular basis. This entry is the first real publication in the Tabor News section. In the future we will try to use this space as a source of news to keep Leaseholders and residents informed about what is going on with the CMA and in and around our community.
A Way to Get in Touch
If you want to reach out for any reason, please click through to the Contact section of the site. There you will find the offices main phone number or a form you can fill out that will be routed to the CMA. We should be able to respond fairly quickly to either method. We would love to get feedback on the site, so feel free to let us know what you think.
And just around the corner we are planning on...
An Overview of the CMA
We have a lot to share about the CMA. How we are organized and operate, as well as how to best engage with the CMA when you need our help or have a suggestion. We just couldn't get it all done in time for the launch of the site. When that content is ready a new navigation item will appear in the menu saying, CMA. Click on it and learn you need to know and more about the CMA.
Subscribing to content
We know that most of you will visit the site just about every day, maybe even twice on a good day. But for those of you who want to keep up with the changes as they come we are looking into simple ways to enable Leaseholders to be notified when changes are up on the Calendar or in Tabor News. This may be a simple link or monthly newsletters. Details are being ironed out but we are hoping to add functionality to enable this throughout the next six months.
More Overviews of Buildings and Parks
The first pass of the site provides an overview of some of the key CMA buildings and resources available to those in the community. We are going to expand upon that first step and provide more overviews of the places that make Mt. Tabor such a special and hidden gem.
We are looking into ways to make the site more visual and their is no shortage of great photos available to place on the site. We don't want it to be an un-curated free for all, but also want to make sure to have images that capture the beauty of the community. If you have pictures you would like to share please reach out.
What You Want
We are open to any and all feedback. Let us know what you would find helpful and we will try to incorporate it into the site as quickly as possible.
