|UPA now has two
publications: Common Ground and the UPA Voice as well a web site. What
are their missions and how do they differ?
Common Ground is published four times a year. It focuses on
discussions of the practices of the profession, best practices, case
studies, and methodologies. The information in Common Ground is
"dateless" in that it is likely to be of interest to the
membership long after the issue is published.
Common Ground is published in hard copy.
The UPA Voice is published six times a year. It is a vehicle for
pushing timely Association-specific information to members. Its
purpose is to inform members about association and board issues,
chapter information that is timely, and other issues that have a short
shelf-life, such as special events and other dated material.
The Voice is distributed electronically.
The UPA Website is a container of the information offered in the
above two vehicles, plus an offering of resources and tools, an
archive. The Website's audiences include UPA members and the public. One
of one of its purposes is to increase awareness of UPA activities
among the public.
