The Becker Newsletter
September 2013 Edition

New Branding, Better Newsletter

The Becker Associates image has just gone through a mighty makeover and as part of it, we've redone our newsletter. In addition to the standard updates you're used to from our communications, we'll be sharing links to insightful reading and other worthwhile finds from around the internet.
We hope you enjoy the new look and feel and welcome any feedback you might have!
