THIS SESSION HAS MOVED TO ANNAPOLIS 1/2.

What is plain language, and how can it help you? What do you need to know to write or edit the clearest, most comprehensible copy so your message makes maximum impact? This session will introduce you to the concepts of plain language and help change your thinking about word choices, structure, and writing in general. Whether you are a plain language expert or have never heard of the concept, this session will challenge you to question your word choices and whether technical jargon is really necessary and to reduce or eliminate the alphabet soup of acronyms that clog technical communications.
