Number of pages
Very Simple. Everything I want is currently on http://www.merepa.org just the current layout and colors are not visually friendly. It should be visually welcoming and explain who we are and what we do. I like round edges but its not mandatory
Page needs to:

- Section for featured members and latest members: I want the pics for the featured members and latest members to be large enough so the pic can be seen clearly but not to big. Also have a small description of who they are at the bottom of the pic. I plan on having some very respected professionals in those spots to attract new members.
