Items 1 to 19 of Message Board ADA’s e newsletter 2011

Welcome to Message Board, ADA’s first e-newsletter.

Message Board was created following a discussion with the ADA Executive, which revolved around the need for a more frequent and widespread way of communicating with the world than just the members' newsletter.

In February 2011 the first edition of Message Board was circulated and ran for six editions before changing its name to Notice Board, to eleviate any confusion with the term 'Message Board' which at the time websites started to use. The publication varies in length and covers a wide range of topics to keep Audio Describers up to date.
