We just Finished our BOD meeting in Virginia Beach Virginia (April 2013). We Sadly had to accept the resignation of Kara from our BOD, but we brought on Jennifer Patankar as a full BOD member, who has handled our Outreach publication and will be heavily involve in our Branding and design of UBPN materials. We also welcomed back Courtney Brett Widzinski to the BOD, a former BOD member who left to start a family, but who now has some time to give to UBPN! Glad to have you back!
We have decided to upgrade the website to the newer version of Joomla. It hopefully will allow us more functionality and ease to update the site, and add new abilities to keep the UBPN community connected. We also will upgrade our forums, which will also allow us to prevent BOT registrations which causes alot of time to be spent scouring through real and fake registrants.
Our Store and Amazon
We continue to sell awarenss items through our UBPN store. Consider purchasing a magnet or bracelet to help spread awareness!UBPN Store
If you do shop through Amazon, please consider using this link:
It will not cost you anything extra, and a small portion of sale goes to benefit UBPN
If you have benefited from the resources offered by UBPN, through the magazine, camp, website or message boards, please consider supporting UBPN through a donation of your time or resources. Without the community’s support, UBPN would be just another brachial plexus website, not the home it has been for so many.
Thank you for your support.
Awarenes Week 2013--How do you do that??
We have asked for volunteers, and we are happy when people come forward. We are always looking for help, whether it be website review-looking for deadlinks, Reviewing drafts of Outreach, Joomla experts, Fundraisers (especially!), or people who have connections who can help get the word out.
