Change is Good

Welcome to the new Inside TVA.

With this issue, we look less like a newspaper and more like a magazine or newsletter, and a color one at that. We think this makes sense for a monthly publication, and we hope you agree.

Because of advances in printing presses, we are able to print in color basically for the cost of the ink. Even with that small added cost, and the cost of using 100-percent recycled paper, our new format will save money in production, paper and mailing costs.

The new Inside TVA is about you, the men and women of TVA. It will include our work lives, our lives outside TVA and sometimes our lives after TVA (the new Inside TVA is mailed to retirees). We want to catch your eye, and we want to foster a sense of community.

To make it work, we need your help.

Whenever you have feedback or an idea for a story, please call or e-mail one of the members of our editorial team — editor La’Nita Jones (423-751-2540; ljones@tva.gov), production editor Nancy Cann (865-632-8004; nmcann@tva.gov), or writer Brooks Clark (865-632-8027; nbclark@tva.gov). You also can send suggestions to the Inside TVA mailbox at insidetva@tva.com.
