"Our Website visitors can find information intuitively - by topic, by clicking on an icon, or by entering a keyword search. The site surrounds them with information focused on their type of organization," says Alex Antoniou, director of educational programs at NSPF.

The new home page features one-touch icons for each organization type, where visitors will be matched up to a host of information, products, services and recommendations specific to their organization's needs.

"People don't have time to hunt and peck," says Thomas Lachocki, CEO of NSPF. "This new navigation process helps save time, separating the wheat from the chaff."
