Welcome to AAPT’s NEW Website!
In an effort to find ways to better communicate with our members and prospective members, we at AAPT thought it was time for a digital makeover. After months of discussion, RFP writing, proposal reviewing, and content updates, we’re pleased to welcome you to the new and improved digital home of AAPT. We set out to intentionally create a space that will span the many generations and preferences of the community of asphalt paving technologists. With that said, here are a few of the key takeaways from the new site that we feel are important to know about:
Centralized hub for all things AAPT. Now you can come to www.asphalttechnology.org at any time and access all of the latest and greatest news, social media, webinars, and membership benefits from AAPT. Our new blogging/news capabilities will enable us to keep you up to date not only on the organization, but also on key events or trends happening in and around our industry. For our members, we’ve added a “photo vault” – so you can try to spot yourself in photos from the AAPT Annual Meeting – and are working on a searchable database of past AAPT Annual Journal papers.
Membership benefits. Our old file management system will be a thing of the past. With this new site, members will be able to log in and set up an account where they will have access to journal pre-prints and presentations from the AAPT Annual Meeting. This also provides an easy, straightforward mechanism for members to pay dues or contribute to the AAPT scholarship fund.
Room to grow. Websites, like asphalt pavements, don’t change much in their fundamental purpose. However, as technology and innovation make waves of change in the asphalt industry, the same is true with digital content. This new website is solely managed by AAPT in a state-of-the-art content management system, meaning we will have the ability to evolve as technology evolves.
We would like to thank the AAPT Board and the AAPT New Technology Committee for their leadership, Fusioncorp Design for their expertise, and most of all our AAPT members, for their support in this endeavor.
Enjoy the new digital home of AAPT!
