At its summer meeting, the American Booksellers Association's Board of Directors discussed the ongoing national debate regarding health care reform, and how ABA might play an advocacy role on behalf of independent booksellers. Following its discussions, the Board concluded that it needed more information from member stores. On Tuesday, July 21, member bookstores were sent a communication from ABA President Michael Tucker, of San Francisco's Books Inc., with a link to a very short online survey regarding health care reform. Booksellers are asked to complete the survey, also accessible here, by Tuesday, July 28.
All of the information gathered will be kept strictly confidential, and no information will be tied to any individual store that participates in the survey.
Questions regarding the survey should be addressed to Dan Cullen, ABA's senior director of editorial content, at email@example.com, or at (800) 637-0037, ext. 6660.
