It's so easy to just keep cranking out the same look with each new e-newsletter. Your readers are accustomed to the look but can you tell the difference between one issue and the next? Can your readers?
I recently changed our two column to a single column, trimmed some of the regular (repetitive) features and tried to shorten the number of topics in each issue.
It's great that you are experimenting with different templates & layouts. A few notes about the email.
The colors used portray your brand well.
The email is wide, making a horizontal scroll necessary. This is happening because the header image is 684 pixels wide. Also, the Premier Corporate Sponsor logos are stretching the template even wider.
The content would lend itself more to a two-column layout with a Table of Contents block labeled "Upcoming Events" as there is a lot of events in this one email.
The call to action (Registering for the events) is lost in all the information. It's recommended to change the Registration link to another color & make it bold to make it stand out more.
Most of the sponsor images within the email are grainy. You can use picnik within Constant Contact to resize the images for better clarity.
Lots of different fonts & font sizes - should try to be consistent.
