The regions they have defined are large relative to the regions in which people have significant contact. There are 8 regional inserts: British Columbia California Midwest Northwest Northeast Ontario Rocky Mountains Southeast In Minneapolis we have little in common with or contact with Chicago (or even Madison) so putting together a regional insert can't build on natural regional interactions much. Related to this, the amount of information and level of detail, frequency of publication for the purposes of announcing events with such large regional inserts doesn't serve our region as well as we think we should be able to do with our own newsletter. Of course we have trouble actually getting our local newsletter out as often as we'd like. The cost of subscriptions at $25 per year for just 4 issues is quite high. Too high to make it a benefit of membership for our Umbrella group. The magazine has indicated (in an ad aimed at potential advertizers) that it reaches 3000 (winter '94) or 4000 (spring '94) people . Anyone have a sense of how these numbers compare to other comparable publications (on any topic)? Fred -- Fred H.
