New with Update 126.96.36.199

Land Characteristics – the drop down menus for land characteristics will now be sorted in alphabetical order. (184.108.40.206)
Personal Property Transfer Items – business licenses for real property were bleeding over into the personal property items transfer screen. That bug has been corrected. (220.127.116.11)

We are excited to introduce the newly updated WinGAP.com website, and we wanted to ensure all of the 146 WinGAP counties were notified of the changes approved at the 2023 Annual Business Meeting on March 1, 2023.
The website updates and the new WinGAP Pricing Tiers represent additional opportunities to provide our Members with support for your daily tasks. The printable Pricing Tiers outline details the different levels and features available to you and your staff, such as safeguarding your files, photos and documents as well as providing nightly backups of all your data files.
With changes in the way we all do business and the rise in the overall cost of almost everything that we use on a daily basis, the Board of Directors proposed and Members approved a dues increase totake effect on July 1, 2024. Dues will rise from $2,500 to $3,500 for all WinGAP counties. We scheduled the dues increase for 2024 to allow time for counties working on a calendar year to amend their budgets.
Along with the dues increase, the Board of Directors proposed and Members approved a $50 late fee per month to be assessed to any county failing to submitannual dues by July 31 each year. This feegoes into effect this year with the 2023 renewal. We have also been approved to offer a 20-hour CE course at this year’s WinGAP Conference, to beheld in Savannah on October 4 through 6 at the Savannah Marriott. We are excited to offer our Members another opportunity for their staff to attend the conference and also obtain 20 CE hours.
Please let the Board of Directors know if you have any concerns and/or suggestions that could help you and your staff do their jobs more effectively and efficiently.
