GBA Newsletter

The newsletter is published nine times each year.  It is sent to members at the beginning of each month from September through May.  It contains a message from the President, a list of the current executive board, articles of interest, announcements of upcoming events and meetings, and advertisements.

Articles are submitted to the newsletter editor while advertisements are sent to the office administrator.  Advertising is offered in a variety of sizes, both vertical and horizontal orientations, at a nominal cost.  The Advertising Options page demonstrates the choices. Advertisers may choose an annual contract to run their ad each month at a 10% savings over the cost of advertising on a month to month basis.  The current contract is available on this website.
