Last week our country got a new President, but our leaders are not the only things changing.  You may notice a something new with infoNET this year.

  • We changed our website to make it easier for you to find what you need. Read social media posts, catch up on breaking news, find a local forums, email your elected officials (including President Trump), read our newsletters, research issues, and more.  Check it out at
  • The website is now more compatible with screen readers, so everyone has access to the same great features.  Let us know if you have any problems, and thank you Mike Hoenig!
  • We are using social media more – so you can find out what’s happening, as it happens.  Make sure you follow us on Twitter (@INFONETiowa) and like us on Facebook (

  • Our mailed newsletter will be shorter –but we’ll provide more detail in the electronic and online versions.  We have readers that want less detail, and others that want more. To get a balance, we are writing a shorter mailed version, and ask you to visit our website (or sign up for our electronic version) if you want more detail.  We will always post a PDF version of our most recent mailed version so you can access the shorter one too.  
  • Coming soon – more videos!  We know that many of you are visual learners and prefer to watch your news, not read it.   We may do a few during session, but you will start to see short informational videos this summer.  If you know of someone that would be great talking about an issue on camera, or giving good advocacy advice, let us know!
