Where are the Classifieds?

Switching over to a new website often can be a challenging prospect at times. With the CPA change it was no different. The organization had a way of doing things and the previous website had a certain flow to how it worked. These changes aren't often a one-to-one process and new ways of thinking or doing things have to be thought through.
I haven't spent much time in going over some of the features under the CPA Member tools recently as I've been super busy working on the upcoming fly-in material. There will be an announcement on that project here shortly, but in the meantime - let's talk about the classified section.
Under the CPA Member Tools section you will find a line item titled "Discussion & Classifieds" As the title suggests, this is where our discussion area is at as well as any classifieds will be.
There are a few categories to try to keep things somewhat organized. Under the Classified, we have "Colorado Classifieds" "For Sale" "Wanted" and "Partnerships"
I created a section called "Fly-discussions" where discussions of current fly-ins, past fly-ins and future fly-ins have a home.
Under General Discussion, we have a CPA Discussion forum, if you find a great location to fly into, there's the proverbial $100 hamburger location and then CPA Website tips and tricks.
We also are including a bit further down on the page a section for Mountain Flying.
If there is a section you'd like to see where it doesn't fit under a specific category, please let me know and I will be happy to create the area of discussion.
If a conversation or thread is particularly lively, you may also subscribe to that particular thread.
For now, this is the best way I have found to provide the service we had on the previous platform. Currently it is for members-only. Let me know if you think this section should be open to the general public and I will work on changing it. Basically I have viewed certain areas within the CPA umbrella to be a value-added prospect for members who join us in our collaborative community.
