New AKA Forums

We’ve added new Forums to the AKA Member Area

Once you login to the AKA Members’ Area there is a FORUM button, which will take you to our new AKA Forums. From there all AKA members can publish questions and hopefully receive answers from our diverse and experienced membership. These new forums include much faster response, inclusion of images in the messages and posts, and a much nicer more elegant experience.

We hope you utilize and enjoy the new Forums. We are receiving some help from Rich Pierce, who from time to time will inject his vast knowledge as moderator, and our newest asset is Andy Jameson from Oak Park heights, MN. Andy will be administrating and moderating the boards. Matt Kaufman will also continue to act as moderator for the boards.

Non AKA Members can read all posts on the AKA Forums, but are not allowed to post in our Forums.

Respectfully Submitted, Jim Langan, AKA Webmaster
