The IAM’s William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center in Hollywood, Maryland, is excited to announce its new website and logos. This is the first time the Center has redesigned its logo since it opened in 1981 and it is the third major relaunch of the website since the Center went online in 2000.
The Communications Department and the Winpisinger Center worked together on these projects.
The website refresh prioritized an intuitive and clean design, making it easier to find content with fewer clicks, adding a FAQ section, and making travel forms and documents easier to locate. Program information is streamlined and descriptions of Negotiation Prep and Field Programs have been added. Future updates include a robust members-only section that will provide access to resources like the IAM constitution, official circulars, research guides, and back issues of IAM Educator.
“Our website is often the first interaction member-participants have with the Winpisinger Center,” said Director Chris Wagoner. “We want it to be engaging, informative, and easy to search. The new site more than meets these requirements; the group that worked on this project outdid themselves.”
The Winpisinger Center’s new logo is bold and modern and incorporates colors similar to those of the original IAM gear logo. In addition to the main logo there are two variants that will allow for flexibility in application and use.
The William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center embodies the IAM’s commitment to membership training, with a comprehensive and concise curriculum that includes programs on lodge administration, organizing, collective bargaining, communications, and arbitration. Participants learn how to navigate the changing workplace, advocate for their fellow members, and stand up to unfair bosses and company practices.
