The NPA discussion link in the email points to the Welcome discussion on the PitStop site. I registered there but could not log in. I'm here now! I did manage to post a suggested project on NPA. I didn't see anything I could help with because I'm still learning .net and need to start with simple tasks.
For those interested in the Dog Rescue project: We have begun contacting people to gather data and suggestions from the people who could most benifit by this. Over the next couple of months I will create a rough outline of what the site will look like. ie. sections and site breakdown.
