Helping association staff meet member needs through technology

Scientific Organization Becomes Knowledge Hub for Members with Website Redesign

Background & Goals

The American Conference on Governmental Industrial Hygiene, or ACGIH®, is a 501(c)(3) charitable scientific organization that advances occupational and environmental health. For over 80 years, ACGIH® has been respected for its dedication to the industrial hygiene and occupational and environmental health and safety communities.

As an organization that is on a journey of growth and innovation, ACGIH sought a partner to collaborate with its team to build a website that would meet modern website standards, provide web accessibility, and most importantly, easily disseminate educational content to its members.

Challenges:

ACGIH was looking for a new website that would provide:

  • Upgraded architecture, improved functionality, and an improved visual design that spoke to its members
  • Accessible web content to support those with disabilities and make a social impact
  • An easier way for members to retrieve educational content
  • Easy integration with their pending Fonteva AMS implementation

Solution:

fusionSpan and ACGIH worked together to conduct a full discovery process to formulate a successful website and content strategy, which fully addressed ACGIH’s educational, visual requirements, and user expectations. The collective team decided that the WordPress content management system (CMS) would be the best fit for the project as it met ACGIH’s requirements and was particularly intuitive for ACGIH’s staff to update and maintain. Additionally, fusionSpan’s custom and easily configurable modules would give the ACGIH team the freedom to provide content to members more effectively.

Solution Highlights

  • fusionSpan Custom Developed Theme and Modules
  • Google Analytics
  • Google Tag Manager
  • wpBakery
  • aXe Accessibility Checker

Results:

The web redesign project brought ACGIH:

  • Clear and legible navigation
  • Increased functionality for our users
  • A visually-appealing and user-centric website with improved user profiles
  • A user-friendly CMS that gives ACGIH staff the freedom to create and update content efficiently.

“fusionSpan provided us the technical and creative support we needed throughout our website project. I was thoroughly impressed with their customer service and timeliness throughout the course of the project. As a result, we have a website that is attractive, easy to navigate, and can serve as the core for all of the knowledge we disseminate to our members and customers.”
