New website launch!

In an effort to improve the quality and accessibility of the MAGS website, we made significant changes to the look and feel of all of the pages.  The old structure was outdated, difficult to manage, and limited in features.  Our existing content has been reorganized into a structure that we hope is easier, and more intuitive, to navigate and use.   The new website structure will also allow us to add new features and to respond quickly to changes in content.  We hope to announce additional improvements over the coming year.

As you explore the new site, please let us know if you have suggestions for improvement!
