America's Great Loop Cruisers' Association (AGLCA) is rolling out new web-based services for its 1,800 members worldwide. AGLCA provides maps, travel information and networking opportunities to boaters who cruise The Great Loop, a circumnavigation of Eastern North America along the Atlantic seaboard, across the Great Lakes, through the inland rivers, along the Gulf of Mexico and around Florida.
Starting in April, members can renew memberships and purchase products directly through the AGLCA website. Other web features will include a searchable member directory and archived database of newsletters. Eventually, members cruising the Loop will be able to enter their current location on the website and view a map showing other members, sponsors, and vendors in the area.
"Our goal is to be the primary source of information for people planning or actively cruising the Great Loop," says AGLCA's email coordinator Stephen Kromer.
