IFACCA to launch new website

In March IFACCA will launch its exciting new website. While the transition is underway our current site and all its resources will remain available, but we will not be adding any new items. There will also be a break in the delivery of ACORNS. However, when ACORNS returns it will be in a great new format and it will  take you to the new site, where you can find new and existing material. The redesign has taken over 15 months of planning and we have strived to incorporate things that work well from the current site and newsletter, as well as introduce a huge variety of improvements in functionality and design.  We hope you will enjoy them both.more >
