Help Us with our New Website!

Hello! A big thanks to last year's Executive Board and especially James Porter for getting our new site up and running.  As with any new website, we are still fine-tuning some things and looking for volunteers ASAP who would like to contribute to the website with writing, editing, etc.  It can be just an hour a week or as much as you like. Give back while adding to your resume!

We have an immediate need for Flyers experienced with the ins and outs of the WordPress platform. If interested, please reach out to Diana Strauss or contact the board at eb@nyflyers.org
