The re-development of is well underway. The existing platform, online since May 2008, has experienced many technical, human resource and outsourcing challenges.

The new platform will utilize the Open Source WordPress Multi-User (WPMU) content management system with social network elements provided by BuddyPress (BP). It will provide numerous options for community participation, comments, blogs, polls, groups, friends, messaging etc.

A 10 point social media strategy has been developed to reach users in other online communities.
