New features at has had a refresh! Many small details have been improved, but two main additions will be the most-noticed by regular visitors:

  1. The GIPA calendar page now uses Google calendar, so readers can scroll back and forth in time more easily and can even link directly to the GIPA calendar on their own computer or phone.
  2. On line payments via PayPal have been integrated to the site. For example, you can now renew your GIPA membership for 2014-2015 on line.

All of the old highlights of the gipa web site are still available. Explore the reorganized navigation menus on the left of the screen to find GIPA News, Hausaufgaben for Sunset classes and more! Enjoy the new look of the site.
