Happy Canada Day!
It seems a good day to share what is happening with PLAIN Canada.
We now have several committees at work building the structure and program for this group:
We have a short-term advocacy campaign in development while work proceeds a on long-term plan. All committees are contributing to the campaign from their perspective.
Each committee is also setting a path to fulfill its own mandate. Michelle Boulton has graciously taken of the task of liaising with all committees and helping them keep moving along. Kate Harrison Whiteside is collecting resources on training and consulting service for our website PLAINCanada.org.
We plan to sell advertising on the training page to consultants, so watch for that notice. We have plans for a newsletter and an expert on the history of Canadian developments in plain language who will contribute to the newsletter.
Our fundraising seminar was a success: Keep it simple: the science behind plain language,
and why you should use it
We have settled on holding our monthly general meetings on Zoom at noon (Pacific) on the 13th day of each month. Committee meetings are monthly. If you would like to contribute from your expertise or interest, please let me know.
I hope to see you at the July 13 meeting.
