All things must change...including association management systems. The United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and protecting hang gliding and paragliding in the United States, will be undergoing a system upgrade in early February to improve member engagement, security, and staff efficiency. In the meantime, some systems may be temporarily offline, but staff at USHPA's Colorado Springs headquarters will be available to answer questions. Change can be tough, but it's always worth it in the end!

Catapult Design, a Denver-based nonprofit design consultancy, recently announced an interesting partnership with North Carolina State University to improve and field test a prototype pit latrine excavation technology that is capable of accessing remote areas in developing nations.
