Clear Language and Design Newsletter

In February, the Toronto chapter of CASLIS (Canadian Association of Special Libraries and Information Services) organized a seminar event with Sally McBeth from the Toronto organization CLAD (Clear Language and Design). The topic of the evening was "Reaching More Clients Effectively: Crafting Documentation in Clear Language".
