Benefits of AABS Membership
Since 1968 AABS has played a crucial role in furthering research into Baltic issues. JBS provides a specialised forum for publications, while regular conferences allow scholars to keep abreast of work in progress and strengthen ties with colleagues. Directly or indirectly, it has been the inspiration for parallel initiatives (Canada, Europe, Australia). My own contacts with AABS have been immensely beneficial — I sometimes wonder what I could have achieved without the support of this amazing organisation.
