In addition to these events, the AAC also offers a range of publications, some of which are available to members without charge. These include Anodizing Newsline, a bi-monthly newsletter focusing on the latest industry news, the activities of members, and advice for professionals, and the Environmental Guidebook, which exhaustively details the regulations surrounding the industry as well as offers compliance strategies for waste management.
