Chalked up with new features, the International Technology Rental Association decided to engage Webbright, a quality, high performance provider specializing in membership website design and development on the Wild Apricot platform. On March 2016, the association were happy to announce the new website is live and kicking.
We asked association president, Dennis Pugh, to share his experience with this website project and and he was generous enough to write a beautiful letter that we're proud to share here in full.

RE: Webbright Services
When my board brought up the idea of completely changing our Association’s Website, I did the only thing a respectable President would do; refused to answer my phone.
Unfortunately they found me one day at a weak moment and I was introduced to Webbright and Lamees Abourahma.
Lamees, who like Cher or Madonna, earned the first name only status by easing any potential discomfort and delivering both in time and budget a site that we are extremely proud of and will continue to develop.
The Wild Apricot platform has enabled us to circle many of our previously contracted functions into one system saving money, time and effort. We can invoice, collect and update accounts on the fly and when required, add pages and content for specific functions and event as well as more permanent use.

We now control our web presence and are able to conceptualize new upgrades, programs and keep in contact with our membership at the touch of a button. Webbright then takes all of these elements and bundles it up in a professional output and the highest level of competence.

Lamees even fell victim to my personal request to step completely out of her comfort zone and travel to meet the membership at our conference to explain the basics of the program. Not only did Lamees delivery a very valued service, she was one of the highest rated speakers at our event especially for knowledge and personality.
I cannot tell you who to hire but as President of the International Rental Association, I can recommend Lamees Abourahma and her company Webbright
