Update:   GCA Journal ~ Spring 2015

The Spring 2015 issue is on the press. With printing, binding, trimming, envelope stuffing and periodical mail preparation, we anticipate it will hit the postal service early next week.

This issue is 40 pages, four more pages than most issues which are 36.  There was some information that came in long after the deadline, but we felt was important to include, so this made the production process take longer than normal.  We apologize for any inconvenience, and we appreciate your patience.  Your Spring issue will be in your hands soon.
