Electronic Topical Time is Ready!

Beginning with this issue of Topical Time, all ATA members can access issues of our journal online.
This is a new membership service being offered by ATA.
You will receive an email every two months, when a new issue of our journal is posted, to let you know how to access it.
Issues of Topical Time beginning from January 2013 will always be available online.

Be sure to add to your email contacts, so your notices about new issues of Topical Time will not end up filtered into your spam box.
If you have a change in email address, be sure to notify ATA so you will receive timely notifications.
And, if you have an email address but haven’t supplied it to ATA, now is the time to email our office so you can receive this free service.
At this point, ATA has received email address notifications from 73% of our members.

The electronic Topical Time uses FlippingBook software. It has automatic page turning, hotlinks to websites and email address and other neat features for your viewing and reading pleasure.
