The AHAA web site has been re-designed!

Tracy Goodbrand (Steeldust Consulting Services) working along side the 2012 Board of Directors has completed the new design of the AHAA web site.

The goal was to update our web site, giving it a contemporary and professional look. We also tried to ensure easy navigation and efficient functionality.

The original web site was created in 1996 and the design has not changed in all these years. We are very pleased to present the new design and hope you enjoy it as well.
