NEW AHNA Soft Launch of Website Redesign

January 6th AHNA soft-launched its new Website. 

AHNA staff have been working diligently to redesign and reformat the website for launch, however, there are still a number of pages that are being finished.  On Tuesday this week, we had to take down the SHOP for a short time, but the SHOP is now working again. 

Finishing the remaining pages and redesigning content, where needed, is a priority.  We have 60 pages up and 16 still under construction.  

The 2017 Conference Registration on-line for Rancho Mirage will be launched on Tuesday, January 17th or before.  

If you are experiencing difficulty logging in, renewing your Membership or ordering from the Shop please call AHNA at 1-800-278-2462.  

Thank you for your understanding as we roll-out the website redesign.
