A message from IGR Chairman,
As part of our rebranding announcement that we made
back in November, we have taken a couple of steps
forward in this area with a few more to come.
First of all, we have purchased the rights to the
Given our charity status in the UK, the trustees have
decided to move our main website and domain activity
to www.igrugby.org. In the short term, all traffic
and links to www.igrab.net will be redirected to www.igrugby.org
where our data is now hosted. Over the past week,
Neil Pyper and I have worked to handle the technical
bits on the back end to ensure that the transition
to the new domain is as smooth as possible, and we
believe we have any kinks worked out.
If your current site links to www.igrab.net, please
change your links to www.igrugby.org. If you currently
do not have a link to us on your site, I would like
to ask that you include a link to our site on your
page with the latest IGR logo, which is attached at
the bottom of the page in my signature. There are
some more exciting things to come with our abilities
to publicise and spread the word about the great things
that your clubs are doing through our web presence.
If you have questions on what or how to do this, please
Second of all, with this domain change, our email
addresses will be changing in short order. For the
trustees, our email addresses will change to User.Name@igrugby.org
– for example, my address will be Jeff.Wilson@igrugby.org.
Any mails that have been sent to User.Name@igrab.net
will be routed to User.Name@igrugby.org to ensure
that there is no lost data or emails. This will have
an impact on the club emails and sign-in information
that we have for you.
In the upcoming weeks, you should be on the lookout
for a mail from Jon Glassmeyer explaining the change
with information on how to change your sign in information
to the new Team.Name@igrugby.org username. We do plan
on sharing best practice data regarding club operations,
fundraising, recruitment and events through these
addresses as well as Yammer in short order. Please
take the time to update your information and contact
Jon at Jon.Glassmeyer@igrugby.org
if you have any issues.
This is an exciting time here in IGR, specifically
around collaboration, communication and partnership
with World Rugby and the national unions. I have some
exciting things to share in the next month in these
areas. I look forward to the great work that we can
continue to do regarding our mission to end homophobia
and build inclusion in Rugby as a sport and culture.
As always, please feel free to reach out me, the
other trustees, your regional representatives or Neil
if you have any questions.
