Webbright designs and develops new website for the Richmond Compensation Association
Webbright is proud to announce another successful launch of a custom Wild Apricot website for the Richmond Compensation Association.
What Was the Problem?
The Richmond Compensation Association’s website (www.richcomp.org) needsed to keep up with the current organization’s growth. Some of the challenges the RCA faced with their website included the following:
- Existing webmaster had not been able to support the RCA with changes to the organization or respond to their requests in a timely manner.
- The website was not designed to allow for team membres to fluctuate between having the webmaster or the RCA Director of Communications update the site.
The RCA wanted to design a website that will allow for increased functionality to manage the Association’s various programs, events, and communication efforts. RCA also liked to provide a more user-friendly and content-rich experience for the members.

What are the results?
Richmond Compensation Association chose the Wild Apricot software for their new website. We helped them move their existing content and contacts from their previous website provide to the Wild Apricot platform, customized a theme template for the website, provided training for staff, as well as other services.
Over a perios of 8 weeks, we worked with Richmond Compensation Association team to learn their pain, needs, and goals. They wanted cleaner, simpler design. We also discussed goals for their site: who are their site visitors and what they're looking for. We learend that the association serves mainly compensation professionals (specific HR-related industry); most of the audience are located in Richmond but some are in other parts of Virginia.
In terms of site performance, the site needed to promote 3 main things:
- Education (or classes offered by WorldAtWork)
- Association Meetings
- custom Google search so users can find any content quickly and easily
- dynamic Google map on event pages so users can look up a meeting locaiton and find directions
- job board for members
- private member directory (for members only)
- news section for association news and updates
