AVDA ITR Advisor
AVDA has partnered with ITR Economics to
provide the monthly ITR Advisor, a 4-page snapshot of the current
economy, using leading indicators to tell subscribers where the economy
is headed and what actions to take now. Written in a conversational
tone, not heavy economic-speak, the ITR Advisor is a simple, quick,
timely, and affordable way to stay informed about the state of the
economy, with useful guidance and clear action points. This is another
member benefit that we have been providing to our members since April
2014. The newsletter is distributed on or about the 21st of each month.
