It’s a New Year and a New CAA Saskatchewan Magazine
Many of us have started the new year with a few changes, whether it’s in business, finance, or lifestyle. We have made a few changes as well, specifically with the CAA Saskatchewan Magazine which starting with the spring 2023 issue, will be offered in a digital format.
It will remain as a quarterly, seasonal publication with relevant content pertaining to Travel, Insurance, Automotive, Membership as well as Advocacy & Safety. We’ve added a few new features, and together with a new publisher, invite readers to enjoy hot new spots, destinations and attractions, events, timely news with information on entertainment, community, Member stories, plus more.
This club decision to produce a digital format of the CAA Saskatchewan Magazine will reduce paper use and follows the business decision made by many organizations to go digital due to escalating paper and postage costs.
The magazine, which is highly valued and recognized as a Member benefit, will remain posted on our club website, caask.ca/magazine, for easy access and online reading.
Watch for it online around March 20th, the first day of spring!
Thank you for your membership. Comments and feedback are welcome at email@example.com
