The easy-to-use website wizard gives chapters the power of web innovation, while preserving the integrity of organizational logos and branding. Additionally, merging chapter websites onto the same platform with the main NABA site presents the association and chapters an innovative opportunity to generate a significant non-dues revenue stream by offering advertising and banner opportunities within chapter websites.
Built-in website tracking and analytics, including web traffic, page views and unique visitor demographics.
Page and partial-page access permissions and security
Gradations of admin levels to allow universal management rights or editing privileges for each chapter

The discussions solution combines the instant, active response features of an email list server with the website content generation capabilities of a forum. Members can share and attach documents in a safe and effective manner, and since it’s integrated with the community’s Resource Library, users can always find archived versions of files. The Discussions module also offers organizations an innovative opportunity to generate a non-dues revenue stream, by including advertising and sponsorship opportunities within the Discussions messages.

Resource Library – Build a private knowledge base of best practices, with sample documents, spreadsheets, meeting minutes, pictures, videos, podcasts and more— and enable members to contribute to the Association’s growth. A key advantage of the Resource Library is searchability. Once the files are published they become indexed for search on the website or optionally on public search engines. Since the searchable content is available to a broader audience, it increases traffic to and exposure for the association, attracting new potential members.
Event Calendar – Provide a single source of updated information for all types of industry events with The Event Calendar feature. Members can view, add, edit and find the events that are most relevant to their needs.
Wiki Glossary – Help chapter members speak the same language by allowing them to create and edit a user-generated dictionary of industry terms.
Analytics – Gain a wealth of knowledge and data by analyzing the online activities of your members. Which individual or groups are most engaged, what is the most popular chapter content, and what issues are resonating?
Speakers Bureau - The Speakers Bureau module helps you search for and reach out to industry experts and speakers for any of your association or chapter events, meetings and conferences. This tool showcases vetted and approved experts within your community, with an industry-focused directory to highlight knowledge, skill sets and expertise. Presentation library for each speaker. Library integration with multiple third party networks, including Facebook, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, Picasa, Instagram, Flickr, Github, Gmail, Evernote, Aflresco, WebDAV.
