Tool/service to track when a website has undergone a major redesign

Let's say I have a list of 20-25 websites and I want to be notified if they undergo any major website changes. Without checking these websites myself every week, what other way could I be informed if they undergo major changes? I don't want to know about minor site updates, but like if they completely redo their website (so this would be a pretty infrequent event for any individual website), I want to be informed pro-actively rather than stumbling across the website by chance.

Managing membership for a small organization?

A friend runs a small professional organization with about 60-80 members, and is looking for a way to more easily manage membership. She is hoping to find software or a web service designed to do these things:
  • Most importantly: allow members to pay an annual membership fee online. She also needs to be able to look up who has paid and who hasn't.
  • Allow members to log in and update contact information and other info (such as number of accredited hours).
  • Email all members, download a list of members, and so on.
Right now members are paying by cheque through the mail, and it's a lot of paperwork. I imagine there is an inexpensive web service out there that would be perfect for this. Can you recommend anything? We're in Canada, if it matters. Thanks!
