NEWS & VIEWS

AIV's News and Views is one of the longest running, most re­spected newsletters in Vermont, providing infor­mation and analysis on local, state, and national devel­opments important to Vermont's industrial and business commu­nity. 

Traditionally published weekly during the legisla­tive session and as warranted during the rest of the year, we are currently trying out a new format -- posting the newsletter as a running blog with weekly content notices for members and guests.

We would very much appreciate your feedback on these changes over the coming weeks and months as we work on improving the use and usefulness of News & Views -- please don't hesitate to email us with your thoughts and suggestions!
