Texas Housing Association keeps members informed of current changes and events through informal e-mail news alerts that are issued whenever something of interest needs to get to the field. This has been found to be the most efficient and expeditious way to deliver the news. It has replaced printed newsletters, which are often out of date by the time they are received. News alerts allow for up-to-the-minute information to be disseminated quickly to everyone.
