The one thing that remains constant is the need for clear and regular communication – something that at AIGS we have not been too good at in recent years – and we have vowed to commit to vast improvement in this regard. The newsletter is designed to be just one of these improvements!

AIGS is a small but highly talented team of people and we have "restructured" to ensure that this team is more readily available to you, the Progress Community. You will read more about the team members in the first article of this Newsletter.
