Maybe you would like to know a little about AHGP, they have been around since 2000 and a couple years ago I started taking care of the website, we have kept all the requirements in place which are pretty easy to do. Take a look at the About Page. Besides the county pages they have Project and Topic sites, you may have a pet project of your own you would be interested in having others read, let us know we would be pleased to add you to the site.
