I thoroughly enjoyed their virtual meeting this morning, but when I went to their website to download the Jan 2020 issue of The Local Historian I find it is only available to members. I believe what they are saying is that they are making available issues less than 3 years old available to everyone, but obviously not the current issue. Try it and see if you get a better result.
