About the ACC Website
Welcome to the ACC website. This site provides an overview of the American Club Taipei to those who want to find out more about it, but it is also a rich source of information and features for the Club’s Membership. Visitors to the site will find a great deal of information about the Club, but Members who log in will have access to a lot of additional information and features.
Color-Coding & Theme Icons
To make it easier to find the information that you are most interested in each area of the Club has its own menu color and icon. The informational pages on the site relating to that area of the Club and its related news, events and promotions all follow this theme. You will see this theme adopted as the the overall page color scheme, as an icon, or as a colored corner depending on what context a particular item is shown in.
|Sports & Fitness Icon & Color Theme||
Sports or Fitness-Related
In the samples above you can see how items relating to Sports & Fitness are indicated. Note that on the sample calendar entry the main color theme and first icon indicate that this is primarily a sports or fitness event – but the additional green ‘Youth & Children’ icon indicates that this item might also be of interest to children or families. A full color scheme key is included lower in this help page.
The ACC website is designed to adapt automatically according to the size of device screen you are using – but the full site content is available regardless of the type or size of device you use.
