The procedure for requesting permission to use or reprint materials is not cumbersome (see below), and MAAPS staff makes every effort to respond in a manner that is timely and accommodating of special circumstances. Still, to plan ahead and avoid last-minute emergencies that it might not be possible to accommodate, allow approximately 10 working days for processing the request.
