February 6, 2008

The ALTA Technology Department has announced readiness for the final stage in a multi-server migration project. Beginning Friday, February 8, 2008, at 4:00 p.m. ET, the ALTA Web site will be unavailable as final steps and testing occur to migrate online content and services to a new server. In addition to the Web site server, a new server for ALTA's Membership Database Software will also go into production. These improvements will enable ALTA to provide improved consistency and speed for visitors accessing the Web site, as well as a more robust platform to support future content. The migration project will continue over the weekend and all services are expected to return to normal on Monday, February 11, 2008. Contact the ALTA Technology Manager, Barry Sawyer, at or 800-787-2582 x235 with questions or concerns.
