Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN – The Aspen Times readership survey will close Tuesday, March 22.

The survey is being conducted to help the publication better understand the region’s post-recession market and the changing expectations of the communities it serves. Any one in the area with an interest in the paper is being asked to take the survey, and one survey taker will walk away with a free iPad.

To participate, visit http:// s3/ or visit and click on the survey link.

Historically, the Times has regularly surveyed readers and advertisers and has used the data to launch niche products, provide unique services and create a long-term vision for the business. The survey, which will take 15-20 minutes to complete, will continue through March.

The survey is free to take and is managed by a third party to ensure the results can be trusted. The survey asks readers and advertisers to rate their satisfaction level with the changes, and asks for feedback on other opportunities the paper is pursuing.

As in previous surveys, the questions also ask readers to rate their interests and provide feedback on what type of content we should be publishing, such as high school sports, shopping, crime, politics and environmental issues.

ASPEN – Houston Cowan, co-founder and CEO of Challenge Aspen, will speak at the Aspen Business Luncheon on Wednesday, March 23. The event is set for 12:45 p.m. at the Hotel Jerome.

And on Wednesday, March 30, Georiga Hanson, executive director of the Aspen Historical Society, will be the featured speaker and give a 45-minute skit on the history of Aspen.

Cost is $26 and includes a buffet lunch and valet parking.
