PERA’s Website Redevelopment Committee has given a fresh new look and brought the website up to today’s Internet standards.

One of the great new features is the addition of a secure shopping cart. You’ll be able to make your payments directly online for convention registration, sponsorships and even your dues in coming years.

On the Home Page, you’ll find a section devoted to Sponsors. Convention sponsors who have selected the webpage listing option will be listed here. We’ll also have the convention sponsor form located here as both a downloadable file and as an online fill-in form that you can pay for using the secure shopping cart.

Currently scheduled webinars will be listed on the home page giving you the details of all upcoming webinars. By clicking on a webinar, you can register for the webinar directly from

There are four webinars remaining on the schedule with the next on June 24th featuring Bill McKnight of Mahle Aftermarket giving us the low-down on MAP controlled thermostats, how they work and most importantly, why they are being used in today’s vehicles.

The webinar tab has a list of all past webinars presented after June 1, 2013. Recordings of these webinars are available 24/7 and you can view them as many times as you’d like. You must submit a request for a link to the recording through GoToWebinar. Just save the link GoToWebinar sends you or you’ll need to request a new link each time you want to review it.

The Events calendar is all new and greatly enhanced. If you want more details on a given event, just click it and the details popup in a new window. You can now save an event or even a whole month of events to your Google or other calendar such as Outlook. Just click the buttons and follow the onscreen instructions.

Not only are membership applications available online, they are fill-in forms that are tied to the secure shopping cart. Prospective members can fill out the application online, pay the appropriate dues and submit the application for review by the Membership Committee.

The Resources tab has the links to member websites for those members who elected to include this option. Also on the Resources tab are the past newsletters starting with the February, 2014 newsletter. Just click on the desired date of the newsletter and you’ll download the pdf.

Thanks go out to committee members Frank Owings, Adrian Long, Skip Hartley, Bob Stanley and Ron Thomas for all their help in bringing this new site online. And a special thanks to Jeff Phillip and Cecilia Locke with Babcox Media.
