Welcome to the New FINDS Website

Welcome to the New FINDS Website

We are proud to finally have launched our new website.  While the old website had served us for nearly 10 years, it was outdated and very, very difficult to update.

Our new site and platform is based on a service called "ClubExpress" which is a membership management platform designed around members of clubs, organizations, and associations.

What the new site gives us is integrated events, membership, volunteering, news, and whole mess of other functions that we could only dream of in our old site.  Another very important aspect is the ability to reach our members by email to communicate upcoming events and activities easily without using a separate platform.  

Membership in FINDS is always free.  If you're not part of FINDS yet and would like to join us, simply click on this button to Join Now!

New to the site is the ability to post information and share information through our Forums.  Feel free to post information on items needed, items you have to lend or giveaway.  You can post asking questions about health recommendations.  Whatever.  it's your platform, so make it the way you would want it.  If you don't see a Forum topic you'd like to have, simply email  Michael and we'll get it added.

As always, FINDS is your group and has always been 100% volunteer-run.  That means, many hands make light work.  Feel free to check out opportunities to volunteer and lend a hand to make our group stronger.

Thank you,

Michael Fisher
