When a redesigned IJC website was launched in late 2012, it was like driving a new car.
It ran like a top, especially compared to our old website. But, like any new car, a tune-up or two was eventually needed.
You may have noticed that the new site, while shiny and updated, has had some hiccups in recent months. Speed has been an issue. It’s like our new car wouldn’t shift into third --- and sometimes even second --- gear.
Well, the mechanics have looked under the hood, and even rebuilt part of the engine. But enough with the automotive analogies.

You should now notice that the site is running more smoothly, especially our Publications page, which houses recent and historical reports and other documents.
Our developers (the mechanics) are still working to fix a few more quirks. We’re also continuing to make improvements to the site. The most recent is a Story Map of some of our boards, which show the areas they cover, along with a summary of what they do.
What else is planned? A survey, among other things. We’d like to hear from you, the folks who use the site and rely on it for information, to tell us what other improvements you’d like to see, or any particular problems you’ve had. Notes of praise also will be gladly accepted.
Thanks. You can take the survey here. It’s short, just four questions long.
Please also consider signing up for our twice-monthly newsletter at the end of the survey by clicking on the subscribe link and passing along your email address.
Have a good trip.
