Website Evolution & September Rhine Times!

The AWC Basel website celebrates over 1 year in existance and, with the pace of change in technology,  is undergoing its first evolution.  In this evolution we have streamlined the header to reduce the number and grouped similar themes together using drop down menus.  All of the pertinent information continues to be available, but in a slightly different place.  A few key visible changes for you to review; the Resources section is updated to include FAQ information, the Library page is updated with information on the mobile book reading apps and we grouped the programs, interest groups and annual programs into separate categories for easier viewing.

Please read the September Rhine Times  and notice the streamlined copy that directly connects with our key content on the website.  The Rhine Times will continue to be available in print format for those members who prefer it, and in the “Members Only” section.

We welcome your feedback and insight to our webpage evolution.  Send your feedback to

Finally, if you are interested in writing a blog post for the website, send it to for publishing on the main page.
