  Welcome to the New Electronic News & Views
AGC President Jack Kelley
News & Views has been transitioning towards an electronic format. The new electronic version will be e-mailed twice a month. President Jack Kelley explains the benefits to members.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce AGC's newest and latest membership benefit.  As many of you are well aware, AGC's national newsletter, News & Views, has been transitioning itself to an electronic format.

Beginning with this issue, News & Views will be delivered to all AGC members by e-mail.  The e-version of the newsletter will remain the primary vehicle of association news and activities with the same need-to-know information and the same quality--only more efficient and faster!  In fact, those who have already subscribed to the newsletter electronically have received their copy of the newsletter days before the printed version is even mailed. 

In many ways, the electronic version of the newsletter is actually superior to the printed version.  E-subscribers get instant delivery, and this new format will have hypertext links to more detailed information.  You can store back issues on your computer, e-mail important articles or issues to your colleagues, and if you want or need a paper copy, you can easily print one out by clicking the printer friendly link in the top left corner of the newsletter.  In addition, this new format will allow AGC to monitor the stories that are important to you and expand our coverage to reflect those interests.

Needless to say, AGC is committed to maintaining the value of membership in the association.  To that end, AGC will continue to make every effort to ensure that News & Views remains a valuable benefit of membership. 


Jack Kelley, PE, CPC
AGC President
