staff has gone through a number of documents that were created five or more years
ago and has made revisions to them. In addition to basic editorial revisions,
the documents were reviewed to ensure that the information is viable and up to
date." The remaining documents that were created five or more years ago are
currently being updated by various task groups and committees within AAMA.
