Over a century ago, AAA began as an organization for motorists. “Automobiling,” in its earliest days, was an exclusive sport, and the auto club was a fraternity for car owners.

In that spirit, we are excited to announce that we have formed a new AAA Road Travel Club, where we can engage in that same kind of excitement.Read More

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to visit the Everson Museum of Art in downtown Syracuse. In our Spring issue of Member Connection magazine, we wrote a story about Syracuse and neglected to mention the Everson. I got a handful of letters from AAA members who pointed out the omission. They seemed very passionate about the Everson, its collections and its architecture, so I knew this was a place I needed to see for myself.Read More

That's when I had the pleasure of visiting the American Veterans Traveling Tribute, a replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall, when it stopped for a few days in Eden, NY.
