Newsletters

This year we’re re-introducing our newsletter that will hopefully improve communication and basic awareness of what’s going on in the Technology Department. Our goal is to produce a new issue every 6-8 weeks with news and helpful hints as well as spotlighting individual players in our department to help put a “face to the name”.
