Website updated!

Good day fellow Shiftizens and guests,

As you may (or more likely not) have noticed, this website has not been updated in quite a while. Today, a group of six students took it upon themselves to volunteer some of their Saturday afternoon, to remedy this deplorable situation.

It’s still a work in progress, but progress has begun! If there are things you’d like to see on the site or want to get involved in future sessions, let one of the board know. Not sure who that is? Well better head over to the updated board page then! You’ll have to wait just a tiny bit longer for the publication of the hotly anticipated newsletter. And if you want some free marketing, maybe we’ll think about adding your organization to the related groups page!

Onwards and Upwards,

Shift 2017
