Why a blog?

From the publication of CRM-specific newsletters to facilitating discussion on the our now-closed listserv, ACRA has long contributed to communications between cultural resource managers. The Grapevine and its sister newsletter ACRA News were the first publications of their kind intended for private sector CRM companies. Side by side, these two publications were important member benefits that kept firms abreast of the issues that affect them the most.

Additionally, the ACRA listserv provided members and non-members alike the opportunity to discuss pressing topics, collaborate on issues, and connect with each other raise the profile of the CRM industry. Many of you have said that both the content in the newsletters and the discussion provided by the listserv have been greatly missed, and you’ve been heard.

ACRA leadership has worked hard to respond to the needs of CRM practitioners, and their goal in resurrecting the newsletter was to find a medium that combined the aspects of your favorite parts of our historical publications. Thus, the ACRAsphere was born.
