The Nakusp & District Chamber of Commerce has unveiled its new website — one it hopes will be helpful both to local residents and tourists.

"It'll make it a lot easier for people to find what they're looking for, whether they're locals looking for business information or visitors trying to plan their vacation," said chamber manager Cedra Eichenauer. "It's going to be a lot easier to navigate the site and find what you need and it will show just how attractive the area is."

The new website ditches the text-heavy old site for a photo- and graphic-intensive one. Most of the information is the same, but it is easier to navigate and find information, said Eichenauer.

The homepage of the site contains three portals — Visit, Discover and Stay. Each has a rotating slideshow of images showcasing different sites and businesses in the area.

"There's lots more photographs everywhere — on the homepage and on the content pages as well," said Eichenauer. "We really want to show off the businesses and the beauty of the region."

The site also provides a clearer portal to the chamber of commerce by showing it on the homepage — unlike the old site where you had to go digging to find any information on the chamber.

There is a link to the events calendar at the top of the page and the big events are highlighted in a sidebar at the right hand side of the page.

"It's also a lot clearer that it is a tourism portal and a contact point for the chamber of commerce," said Eichenauer.

The website also mentions non-member businesses in the visit section of the site.

"That's in development because if they're not chamber members, I don't really know about them," said Eichenauer.

Check out the new website at www.nakuspandarrowlakes.com. If you have any comments on the site, e-mail Eichenauer at staff@nakusparrowlakes.com.
