One complaint frequently expressed here about the American Planning Association is the massive amount of junk mail they send out.
I want to see if the accusatons are indeed true. From 1 January to 31 December 2006, I'll be saving all APA-related junk mail that's sent to my house. This includes everything but Planning magazine, chapter and division newsletters, and invoices. I'll also collect planning-related but non-APA junk mail. At the end of the year, I'll tally all the APA mail, AICP mail, and junk mail from those who rent the APA mailing list.
Do we really get 20 Planners Bookstore catalogs a year, or is it just our perception? Stay tuned to this thread in 2006, and find out!
