PgUS has a new website!

We have been hard at work for the past few months working on a new website and are pleased to finally be able to show it to everyone! This new website has a membership section (it's small now, but we will be working to expand it soon!), allows new members to join as Professional members immediately using a credit card to pay their dues (other methods are still supported, of course), and provides the back-end code to the PostgresOpen Associated Project.

If you see any issues or have any questions regarding the new website, please contact us!
