NAPA members should weigh in on an important AAA survey regarding the long-term planning of AAA publications. The world of publishing is changing very rapidly and AAA is going to have to respond to the opportunities and challenges. The survey will ensure that recommendations to AAA about publications have the benefit of NAPA member input. You can also choose to be entered into a drawing to win one of two $50 Visa gift cards.
