APWA Reporter has a new online environment
 

A new online environment for the APWA Reporter is now live on the APWA website!
 
Rather than the old-school flipbook view that has been in use, members and non-members will now be able to access an entire microsite for each issue with every article now being clickable and having its own URL. Additionally, users can share articles directly to social, search current and past issues, and read articles on mobile devices without sacrificing usability/readability.
 
We’ve also updated the Reporter landing page to accommodate this new technology (see links below).
 
New Reporter Landing Page: www.apwa.net/Reporter (click on image of this month’s issue to see microsite)
