The Academy has a new area code, 847, effective Jan. 20. The new long distance telephone number is (847) 823-7186. The area code change affects the Academy's fax lines and all of the staff's direct-dial telephone lines. There is a grace period, from Jan. 20 to April 20, 1996, when individuals can use either the 847 or 708 area code to complete a phone call. After April 20, all calls must include the new 847 area code. The Academy will still maintain its toll-free phone numbers - (800) 346-2267 for general information and (800) 626-6726 for customer service to order Academy products.
