Since I first started as webmaster for the National Empowerment Center in 2004, I've created four Alternatives websites; 2005, 2008, 2010 and now 20013. These are done on a low budget, simply modifying NEC's existing style sheets and adding in new graphics provided by the event planners.
The theme for 2013 was “Building Inclusive Communities: Valuing Every Voice”
The national mental health conference organized by and for those in the mental health consumer/survivor/peer recovery movement was held at the Hyatt Regency in Austin, Texas, from Wednesday, December 4, to Saturday, December 7, 2013.
Here are some screen shots showing how the style has changed through the years:
Now 960 pixels wide as we changed the width of the website last year.
Anthony & Dodge, PC
Certified Public Accountants
For seven years, Anthony & Dodge had used a canned "accountant" website available via a major publising company. Unfortunatly they didn't have time to update it, didn't really understand how, and the website was all but invisible to the search engines.
Their new website was launched in January 2012.
Benchmark Management Systems
BENCHMARK is a professional business management services organization that helps clients work strategically on business development issues to systematically solve effectiveness challenges in both work and life. This results in higher profits, better cash flow, and a happier workplace, which in turn leads to a healthy, productive, and joyful life.
Their responsive website was launched in December 2014. Note the use of a slider on the home page, and parallax images at the About Us page.
BevCam - Beverly Community Access Media
BevCam developed their website about 8 years ago using Joomla which is and open source platform. Through the years, Joomla had upgraded the software, but being busy with running a cable access studio, BevCam had other things to do and let the updates slide. This is a common problem with Joomla, becuase it's no simple matter to upgrade.
When we met with BevCam in 2013, the current Joomla version was 3.04 but they are running the site on 1.5, and the site was loaded with security vulnerabilities and bugs. There have been two major upgrades to the software since they started (9 total!). Rather than upgrade Joomla, which they really didn't understand anyway, we decided to create a new WordPress based website.
We reviewed a number of excellent templates finally picking a responsive template called Avada. We "re-skinned" the template to match their logo, built out the site structure, optimized all the pages, loaded up various documents, took the site live, then provided training on how to update the website on their own.
Of course we remain available to assist as needed. It might be managing their email, or doing an occasional update.
Since this website is hosted on our cloud based VPS server, the whole website is backed up every night to an off site server in Arizona.
Catalyst For Business
It's time for an Online Business. Our hosted and easy-to-use system is designed to meet your specific business needs - allowing you to focus on your goals, not mastering the technology behind it. Visit our Business Catalyst microsite at http://catalystforbusiness.com for more information!
The Dental Shopper
The Dental Shopper was launched July 1, 2009 and was my first major project using the Business Catalyst platform. I created a number of custom web apps so members can pay for and upload classified ads, coupons, business directory listings etc. all of which is accessed by a searchable database. The client has full control of the site via an extensive control panel which allows him to manage data, update the website, track client interactions, and more.
Business Catalyst is an integrated system that runs the website, email marketing, and an online shop, all this while growing a customer database with integrated analytics.
Business Catalyst was recently purchased by Adobe! If you would like to try it free for a month, click here. No credit card is required, and if you feel its something you want to work with, I can extend the trial up to 6 months!
Eastern Board of Approved Soccer Officials Association
EBASOA trains and provides officials for public High Schools and private schools throughout Section 2 -- the Capital District -- of New York State. We have been in existence since 1954 officiating boys’ soccer matches in the Albany area.
This site features a flash based slide show on the home page which showcases the soccer officials in action.
Hamilton Wenham Education Fund
The Edfund website was totally rebuilt in 2012 and is now a responsive website meaning that it looks great on a desktop, but also works well on a smart phone or tablet. It sports a Wow Slider on the home page.
The Edfund is an independent, nonprofit, charitable corporation with the unifying goal of building a permanent endowment fund to perpetually support the enhancement of the educational experience in our community.
The Edfund is a charitable corporation that raises money for an educational endowment fund. The proceeds from the Edfund annually support educational, financial requests received from the schools in order to directly and perpetually enhance the educational experience in our school district.
Training developed by people who have learned from their own experience how to get through an emotional crisis and integrate the experience into a broader understanding of themselves and others. A program developed and promoted by the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery.
Essex County Estate Planning Council
The Essex County Estate Planning Council is a growing group made up of over 100 estate planning, wealth management and other affiliated professionals. The Council provides educational and networking opportunities that aim to build and strengthen relationships among its members and promote the sharing of ideas and strategies in a collegial and cooperative atmosphere.
Tom Rogers Web Design developed a newsletter template for ECEPC using MailChimp with the first issue distributed in December 2014.
Visit the Essex County Estate Planning Council website (they use a canned website provided by The National Association of Estate Planners & Councils).
KBMO Diagnostics, LLC
KBMO Diagnostics is the marketing arm for several highly complex laboratories that have developed and offer Food Inflammation Tests. The FIT Tests employ unique methods that detect both IgG antibody and complement together to determine the reactivity of each sample against a wide variety of food antigens. These methods yield more complete profiles of the various foods that may cause food sensitivities..
Tom Rogers Web Design is in the process of updating the website with a responsive design. We also set up and manage Google mail accounts, and a Box.com system to safely store and share reports with participating doctors.
Marie Buckley's Blog
Marie has made good use of social media to promote her book - The Lawyer's Essential Guide to Writing published by and available at the American Bar Association.
National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery
WASHINGTON, DC - April 16, 2008 - Dan Fisher with Senator Kennedy at the Campaign for Mental Health Reform's Gala Dinner in Washington DC
Mission: The National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery (NCMHR) will ensure that consumer/survivors have a major voice in the development and implementation of health care, mental health, and social policies at the state and national levels, empowering people to recover and lead a full life in the community.
National Empowerment Center
The mission of the National Empowerment Center Inc. is to carry a message of recovery, empowerment, hope and healing to people who have been labeled with mental illness. We carry that message with authority because we are a consumer/survivor/expatient-run organization and each of us is living a personal journey of recovery and empowerment. We are convinced that recovery and empowerment are not the privilege of a few exceptional leaders, but rather are possible for each person who has been labeled with mental illness. Whether on the back ward of a state mental institution or working as an executive in a corporation, we want people who are mental health consumers/survivors/expatients to know there is a place to turn to in order to receive the information they might need in order to regain control over their lives and the resources that affect their lives. That place is the National Empowerment Center.
Original oil paintings and small daily paintings
I've wanted to do an artist website for a long time. This project was particularly fun for me because Elizabeth was my high school art teacher!
The home page has a rotating slide show which offers a taste of what is found in each gallery. Inside, there are seven thumbnail based galleries that showcase gardens, grasses, landscapes, watergardens, flowers, nests, and fruit paintings.

South Dakota United For Hope & Recovery
South Dakota United for Hope and Recovery is a peer-run statewide education, advocacy, and support organization dedicated to sharing experience and knowledge of mental health recovery and wellness principles with the people of our state.
Tom Rogers Web Design built the website on a shoestring, hosting the site on the Business Catalyst platform. They manage updates on their own, and we remain availabe as needed, which is not often.
Support Our Schools (SOS)
SOS is a grass-roots organization dedicated to supporting and strengthening our public schools. Our goals include engaging the community in the school budget process, exploring numerous ways of increasing funding to our schools, and encouraging cost saving initiatives while maintaining a high standard of educational excellence.
