Q-Why was the domain name changed from siacentral.net to OurSIA.org?
A-It was important to this SIA Board that all Reps discontinue using the SkyWest sponsored email accounts and create our own. It was also a great time to freshen up the website, so we decided it was best to return to basics and start anew.
Q-Why did SIA create a new website?
A-Siacentral.net was created 10 years ago. Since that time many webmasters have come and gone, and each had their own idea of how the website should be. Because of that siacentral.net lost its intended course of being a sought after and valuable tool for all SkyWest Flight Attendants.
Q-How is this website different from the previous website siacentral.net?
A-The old website has been replaced by a new sleeker, more user friendly site that will be easy to navigate. The homepage includes a variety of simple drop-down menus to make accessing information faster. SIA Members will be able to find the information they require at the click of a button with updates being administered regularly.
Q-Is OurSIA mobile friendly?
A-Yes, with this new website, we have enabled our Members to view the website more easily on devices such as smart phones and tablets. As technology improves, the way you access information is changing, and it is important for SIA to be responsive to this.
Q-How do we know it’s only SkyWest Flight Attendants on the website?
A-After the initial opening period of the website (after October 10, 2014), Flight Attendants will have to register and maintain their own password. Once a Flight Attendant registers, it will take up to 24-hours before they will be admitted to the website. This is to ensure only SkyWest Flight Attendants are able to access the site.
