TheILA.org Launches!

Drop what you're doing and race over to TheILA.org, ILA's new and improved website! In this Phase 1 launch, you'll find a fresh, more mobile-friendly design, and easier access to searchable resources. Be sure to change your bookmarks and any links from ILA-Net.org to TheILA.org. Phase 2 will go live in about a month with some additional design enhancements. We'll also migrate over more resources at that time. While the migration continues, ILA members can continue to access all of ILA's trusted resources through ILA Intersections (Intersections.ILAMembers.Org).
