We are one of only 2 of the local AAA clubs that still make our own maps, we publish about 95 titles of street and road maps for Northern California, Nevada, and Utah. Ten cartographers maintain all the titles on an 18 month cycle. Map production here is all done in Illustrator on the Macintosh platform, having converted from scribing over a 12 year period ending about 5 years ago. We are using GIS data principally for source material when received from government agencies and using a variety of methods to work with it, but primarily MAPublisher and ArcView.
I found CartoTalk through Avenza and look forward to sharing thoughts and ideas between projects. I'd certainly be interested in opinions of the new type engine in Illustrator CS and it's effect on existing projects.

NOTE: I moved Alpine Mapping Guild's response to this quote to here so the resulting discussion would be in a more appropriate forum.
