The new year is upon us and we have a lot of potential topics to cover in our monthly meetings, but we’d prefer to gauge our members’ interest beforehand. What topics do you think we should be covering? Who should we be inviting to talk? What would should we accomplish together in #2020?
The Plain Language Action and Information Network (PLAIN) is a community of federal employees dedicated to the idea that citizens deserve clear communications from government. We believe that using plain language saves federal agencies time and money and provides better service to the American public.
