The issue has been raised about the possiblility of getting a electronic copy of the Voice, vice a paper copy? 
What do you prefer?

Please give us some feedback to help the overall membership and the whole Organization.

Thanks

I would, sure.  Especially if it would save a significant amount of money.  No matter though, I prefer most of my stuff be sent electronically; I just print out anything I need.

No, No, NO!!

I can take a printed VOICE and "accidentally" leave it in the waiting area at the DMV, or the tire shop, or the doctor or leave it on the corner of my desk at work where someone will see it. I could do the same thing with a pdf that I print out myself but it won't get the same attention.

I have mentioned before that I would gladly purchase an extra subscription or three if the opportunity were available. There is something about a glossy magazine that just isn't there elsewhere. If we have to do it to cut costs, go to fewer pages, or even only three issues per year but please don't cut it out completely!

Where the option for BOTH. Hard copy AND .pdf?   Many times there are tid bits that need to be distributed to other venues and I don't treasure cutting up my nice magazine. Scanning it is not always an option.

I'm with Keith.  I've been a United member for 20 years, and I love the professional, glossy magazine.  I'll take it just the way it is, fewer issues if necessary, or by subscription, whatever makes it viable.

I do remember the question when it was posted in the survey and even on the survey, most people prefered the paper copy.  I know I do for most things.
I also like the option of the electronic copy so I could print specific sections to give to people if needed.

I am not asking this question as a way of possibly eliminating the paper copy of the voice, and going electronic format. 
I love the professional look of our color magazine.  It is nice to be able to leave it at someones office, or store and for it to be noticed.

Thanks

Then, satisfy my curiosity, why are you asking it?

I wanted to see the overall general conscensus was.
At this point, I still do not have enough replies to have a good sampling of members.
