Connectional Lay Council Launches New Website
The leadership of the Connectional Lay Council of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church is pleased to announce its groundbreaking and innovatively designed website. After three months of intensive planning, work and dedication, we are delighted to officially launch our new site,

The Connectional Lay Council contracted its longtime technology partner, Sirius Networks LLC of Charlotte, N.C. to develop, design and maintain this new, highly technical, web endeavor. It also contracted with Sirius to redesign its logo along with a forward-looking brand strategy that delivered a stunning high-definition new logo package that is sure to be a support to every future creative endeavor.

The Councils goal was to create a new web environment that would provide its visitors a very technically secure, visually impacting and modern designed site that would provide an easier environment for accessing information and key CLC tools and resources. The newly designed resource pages continue to be one of the most visited areas of the web site, providing items frequently used by the local districts and churches. Another sub-project deliverable that we are truly excited about is the addition of a mobile site which allows its visitors the ability to view a crisp yet smaller imprint of the website on any mobile device (iPhone, android, or tablet).

Thank you to our General President, Mary J. Matthews for her vision, tireless effort, leadership and guidance. Also, many thanks to Ms. Rhandi Stith, the Creative Design Project lead for her unwavering dedication to this project.

The entire project team invested numerous hours of time and energy to make this site launch a great success.
