The annual meeting of ASIA was last week. We are looking for new membership and we are allowing first time members a discount . This is a great organization where the members share information through the GUITARMAKER magazine.
Also with the magazine we have a bi annual symposium in East Stroudsburg PA. There you get to speak to people and enjoy the class room presentations of building and repair techniques.
We are a non profit organization and hope you will consider joining. Here is the link to the home page and I do wish you help support the are of Luthiery .
thanks

I too am a member of A.S.I.A. I have found Guitarmaker to have some wonderful articles with valuable information that you can't get elsewhere. It's a quarterly publication, and I look forward to each new issue.

Last year I had the opportunity to attend the symposium for the first time. The people giving lectures and demos were great. The hardest part was choosing between the lecture schedule. There was almost always at least two lectures at the same time of interest. The cost was reasonable and included 3 meals a day. It also had an option for dorm rooms.

John,
If one can only join one organization, which would you recommend first, the ASIA, or the GAL? I must admit that one of the benifits I will most enjoy is the quarterly publication.

I belong to both. If you are on the east I would do ASIA and west GAL. The Symposium that ASIA had every other year is a great place to learn from the other builders and gain information. I can tell you that had it not been for ASIA and the contact I made there, I doubt that there would have been a Blues Creek Guitars. It helped me establish my career and taught me things you don't find in books

I don't know about the ASIA, but GAL covers almost any kind of stringed instrument, with lots of attention to historic and esoteric things. Might be a consideration if you want to build something other than guitars.

I did post a trip report about the 2008 GAL convention. It was one of the true highlights of my humble attempts at lutherie.

John,
That is a good deal. I am going for it...even though I am on the west coast.
Is the publication geared mostly to guitar making?
