Why audio? GMF is a major convener of important meetings related to transatlantic cooperation, and already makes audio available from them, so policymakers and citizens alike can hear important speakers on issues of North American-European cooperation. Providing an audio "time capsule" of the year seems like a good start towards adapting its annual report in new formats. In addition to showcasing key speakers, your organization may want to offer an annual report audio feature to:
review compelling quotes from newsworthies at your press availabilities;It's early enough in 2009 for you to start planning how you'll capture audio throughout the year for this project. Share your ideas in the comments.
share a message from your CEO only available in this format;
capture the sounds of groups you served: children, volunteers, consumers, homeless women, marchers in a protest;
compile sounds that underscore your activities for the year, from rocket engines to train whistles and more; or
play music, poetry or dramatic passages performed at arts events.
