New logo debuts

The HAPS Board and Steering Committee are proud to present the new HAPS loHAPS new logogo. The design uses the red and blue of the old logo and is meant to evoke Da Vinci's Vitruvian man drawing without being a literal copy of it. The new design will be part of our new website banner and will also be used as our favicon ("favorite icon"), the little logo that appears with our URL.

New website arriving Tuesday!

Don't forget that our HAPS website will be down for a few hours on Tuesday 11 December as we make the transition to the new website design. For a period of time after the transition some of the pages will need to be "cleaned-up" and a few of the navigation links put back in place.  It will take time for the HAPS staff to make all the changes needed.  We appreciate your patience as we make the transition.
