Welcome to the ArchNewsNow.com home page!

Monday we e-mailed the daily newsletter to our subscribers for the first time....right on schedule!

Our software development team is committed to keeping our Web site pages and the newsletter very small so the site will remain very fast, and the newsletter won't clog up your e-mail.

Very shortly the home page will be hosting feature articles, special sections, a comprehensive industry calendar, and much more. We welcome comments, suggestions, and submissions.
