The AAG Newsletter is published monthly except for July-August, which appears as a single issue. Current circulation is approximately 10,000.

Submission deadline for the AAG Newsletter is the first day of the month previous. For example: the deadline is October 1 for the November issue. The combined July-August issue has a slightly later deadline, June 10. Please keep these deadlines in mind when preparing your ad for submission.

A display ad must be sent as a PDF with appropriate dimensions as noted above. Display ads run for one month only. Due to technical limitations we are unable to run a display ad online as it appears in the print newsletter. However, we will run only the text of the display ad online if the advertiser supplies us with the text as a separate document. We request that the advertiser send a Word file of the text of the ad in addition to the PDF to assure the timely posting of the ad to the AAG website. If the advertiser does not send a separate text document we cannot guarantee that the text of the display ad will appear online. Please send the text of the display ad in addition to the PDF.
