The website that houses Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) General Assembly business has gotten a facelift and tummy tuck.
PC-Biz, home to assembly business going back to 2006, has a fresh look and an updated structure, improving navigation and accessibility for users. And, the makeover is just in time as commissioners, advisory delegates, and others prepare for the 222nd General Assembly (2016), set for June 18–25, in Portland, Oregon.
“PC-Biz is critical to the work done by the General Assembly, and enables those gathered and the church at-large to access all the business in an accurate and timely manner,” said Tom Hay, director of assembly operations. “This new redesign provides even greater support than before for those discerning the mind of Christ for the denomination and the for whole church.”
Among the greatest improvements for PC-Biz is its ability now to be read on computers, tablets, and smart phones in a size and format right for that screen. This responsive design works across all platforms and devices and allows users to simply open up www.pc-biz.org in any browser. The former PC-biz app is no longer needed and can be deleted.
Users who already have a PC-Biz account can log in as usual and browse the new site. Newly elected commissioners who already have an account will have their accounts automatically upgraded to add special permissions. Newly elected commissioners completely new to PC-Biz will have an account created for them in the next few days.
A tutorial on how to use the new PC-Biz is available online, and additional new features will be added as the 222nd General Assembly (2016) nears.
