The ASP Discussion Groups
ASP members post thousands of messages each month in our private discussion groups. We explore technical issues, business concerns, and marketing topics. Because of the varied backgrounds of our members, we often get a full range of answers to many questions. You’re encouraged to participate in the discussions, or just sit back and read other software professionals’ opinions.
The ASP’s Newsletter
ASPects, the ASP’s monthly newsletter, is packed with association news, industry trends, and fresh marketing ideas. While ASP’s discussion groups are great at delivering answers to immediate questions, ASPects takes a longer, more in-depth look at marketing, technical, and business issues. Check out some sample ASPects headlines.

Help Shape the Software Industry
The ASP has been one of the “movers and shakers” in the software industry since its founding in 1987. In the past, the organization has fought legal battles to keep the word “shareware” in the public domain for use by everyone. The ASP even testified before Congress on a copyright bill, and positive changes were made to the bill as a result.
Presently, the Association of Software Professionals is deeply involved in the PAD standard, which uses state-of-the-art XML technology to make software submissions easier for both authors and distributors. If you have the motivation, you can work with like-minded people to help design, build, and implement future projects, and in the process, leave your mark on history.
