November 2010 Issue of the Communication Matters Journal Available Online

We apologise for the delay in mailing the November 2010 issue of the Communication Matters Journal to all our members. Due to the severe weather conditions, the journals are stuck in the courier’s depot awaiting delivery to the CM office in Edinburgh.

However, members can access an online copy from our eLibrary – the file is password protected (refer to the password on your membership acknowledgement letter or email admin@communicationmatters.org.uk). Note that the PDF file is about 3Mb.
