If you would like to improve your writing so your customers, clients, members, employees and other readers will "get it" faster and better, consider attending the 20th anniversary conference of the Plain Language Association InterNationalThe conference is scheduled for Oct. 10-13 in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. 

The conference theme: "Plain Language Advances: New skills, knowledge, research, and best practices." Plain language principles can help you write clearly and concisely. Plain language matches the needs of your readers with your needs as a writer, leading to effective, efficient communication.
