First off, let me thank all of you who have participated in Lakekit over the course of 2018, whether by maintaining an existing website or by creating a new one. And for those of you waiting in the wings, we look forward to bringing you online in 2019! I also appreciate the patience all of you have afforded us as we’ve worked through the transition to managing the system as a program of Wisconsin Lakes, bringing on Northern Graphics as our technical service provider, navigating a change to a new WordPress theme and editor, and all the upgrades and improvements WordPress implemented over the course of the year.
All of us working on this project are very excited about 2019 and are ready to get rolling on it as the calendar flips tonight!
One change that will impact all of you is that we’ve decided to time all annual renewals to the time most new members come onboard – our workshop at the Wisconsin Lakes Partnership Convention. As a result, your 2019 fees are not due until April 15, and will run until April 2020 once paid. In addition, as a thank you for bearing with us while we’ve been largely buried in the “backend” managing the transition, we’re keeping 2019 fees for all 2018 members at the same rate – $50.
More on all things Lakekit, including a user survey, will be coming soon. Formal invoicing for the 2019-20 subscription will be coming soon as well.
In the meantime, thanks so much for being part of Lakekit, We all look forward to working with you in 2019!
Executive Director, Wisconsin Lakes
