The Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS) is a global professional association of educational and research institutions, individual scholars, and practitioners active in the work and study of the United Nations, multilateral relations, global governance, and international cooperation.
ACUNS needed to a functional and intuitive website to serve existing members and attract new ones, and they needed it fast: they had just graduated from being a project of a coalition of universities to being their own 501c3, so didn’t have a website of their own.
We worked quickly to build a website that would allow the new organization to open registration to new members, and allow the re-registration of existing members. Cornershop’s team built the site using the Blocksy theme in just a few weeks. We configured the Restrict Content Pro plugin and Gravity Forms for member registration and created a pass-through for members to access Brill Publisher, which makes it easy for members to find resources and connect with other professionals.
