UACC President Michael Hecht's Message, May, 2013.
The UACC is currently working on a digital version of the Pen & Quill magazine. The recent rise in postage and printing costs is continually hindering our ability to put out a printed magazine. We have not given up on this 50 year tradition of publishing oour magazine, but it makes economic sence to our followers and members for us to explore this new format.
We will keep you aprised as to any changes we may have in store.
Over the years the UACC has been dragged in to controversial issues which I believe hurt the club and membership as a whole. Our new Board of Directors has taken the approach that we are an educational organization and our mission and our goal is to educate the autograph collector so they may make an educated purchase or acquisition. In truth we don't care who sold what to whom or who said what to whom. We are not a police force. Our realm is that of our membership to who we serve. We can not solve the world's problems or take sides in any petty disputes. We do require all members adhere to UACC Code of Ethics as well as our policies and By-Laws.
I invite each of you to join us on UACC Community to share your collecting experiences and show everyone your prized autographs. We encourage you to post comments using your real name rather than aliases used on other sites to attack and cause disharmony. We want this site to be free of politics and name calling. Join us.
