NET News:  NETNC’s newsletter is e-mailed to many readers and printed and distributed to local organizations and businesses for customer pick-up

Issued monthly or bi-monthly – new schedule is bi-monthly unless there are pressing items.  Join the e-mail list by sending an e-mail note with SUBSCRIBE in the subject line to netnews98422@hotmail.com.  See current pick-up locations in a recent issue.

We’ve gotten good feedback on e-mailing just a cover note and a link to the print image on this website to simplify the distribution chore – there are limits to what and how big attachments to e-mail messages can be – so we’ll continue this way.  Eventually the distribution will switch to MailChimp, so that you can manage your subscription yourself.
