California Alpine Club (CAC) is a outdoor and social organization exploring, enjoying and protecting the natural resources of our land. The California Alpine Club Foundation (CACF), founded by the CAC, supports the conservation and environmental education endeavors of SF Bay Area and Lake Tahoe area organizations. The new CAC/CACF website was designed to reflect their 100+ years of tradition and their ongoing activities.
In this redesign, content was expanded to present CAC’s long history, giving users a full picture of the organization. The project required extensive customization to present their content. Customized spaces within the content management system (CMS) were created to enable the client to update site content without the need for specialized coding knowledge.
The client also required a members-only section to display member information and store archives for members’ eyes only. The event calendar was created with both a public and a members-only view view, giving the public a clear sense of the events that organization is producing, while specific event and member information is reserved for members.
