For the last year your web team along with the office staff have been working on introducing new features and services on the BMW MOA website.
One of the leading issues raised has been the lack of any security on our website, especially for rally registration. Last year we identified ways to upgrade our site to support secure transactions. By upgrading our member database software and securely connecting it to the website, members would be able to renew, register for events (such as the International Rally) and make country store purchases. Visitors would be able to join on-line and register for the rally.
We are pleased to introduce a new area of the BMW MOA website, the secure services area. Here you can renew your membership, update your member information including address and your listing in the 'MOA Owners Anonymous book. You can also pre-register for the International Rally (opens April 1) and make purchases at the Country Store. Verisign secures the credit card transactions and as always the BMW MOA does not and will never share your information with any outside party.
We have also updated the infrastructure behind the website and the BMW MOA Forum. Front Page is no longer utilized and the pages as well as the available images are being optimized for improved performance. The navigation has been updated as part of the groundwork for a complete upgrade as part of Phase II.
Going forward we will be concentrating on upgrades to the interface of the Country Store as well is improving the navigation of the site. As our use of the secure area increases we will also be working closely with the Editor of the Owners News on expanding content for members only.
We invite you to take a look around at the site and give us your feedback, especially any issues with links, formatting errors or other aggravations you encounter. On every page there is a link on the bottom; email@example.com.
Feel free to provide feedback, trouble reports or general comments. It would be helpful if you could include (cut and paste) the URL or title of the page. If you were in the secure commerce area a brief description of the events that led to the problem would also be very helpful.
Thank you for visiting the BMW MOA website.
