Starting in June 2017, MIPN transitioned from producing a long-form pdf newsletter to shorter monthly emailed newsletters, using a web-based design platform. Going forward, we will be sending out our e-newsletters bi-monthly. Check out our archived 2017 newsletters below. Over time, we will be adding older back issues to this archive. To receive our latest, please sign up for a low-cost membership today!
