The MIP notes are intended for local Montgomery area Industry and Government Partners. Recipients may choose to forward. Any email lists associated with MIP should not be forwarded or shared outside of MIP.
FROM the Editor:
If you have an item that should be included in the notes, please email that to MIPDistro@gmail.com NLT than 1700 the day before a MIP meeting. This will insure accuracy when being posted to the notes.
CHANGING EMAIL ADDRESS? Send an email to MIPDistro@gmail.com with the old and new addresses. It will be updated within a few days.
RESUMES: If you want to pass along a resume for distribution, you can also send that directly to MIPDistro@gmail.com. As we mentioned a few months ago, if the resume is for someone you are trying to help, suggest you do a little “peer review/QC” before forwarding on. Some of the resumes of late that have been received could have used some help. (Actually, some could have used a LOT of help!)
· Downtown Montgomery Revitalization. More lodging options are coming to downtown Montgomery, which will increase the availability of rooms within walking distance of MITS and AFITC. Joining the Marriott Renaissance, Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn & Suites, and Doubletree Hotels, will be the Staybridge Suites on Bibb Street (announced a few months ago), and now the Bishop Parker building near the Railyard Brewing Co. will be renovated to become a Springhill Suites Hotel. (23 September 2016)
