2023: Year in Review

DAISY Annual Report 2023 cover

Welcomes and Recognitions

The DAISY Board and wider community benefit from the contribution of many people, and occasionally that dynamic changes, allowing a constantly fresh approach and always keeping the door open for new perspectives.

In 2023 the DAISY Board welcomed David Andrews representing the National Federation of the Blind, following the sad loss of Scott LaBarre at the end of 2022. In the DAISY Team we said farewell to Jo Bond who supported DAISY as finance administrator, and we welcomed Ruth Bates to the role.

DAISY Board and General Meetings

In May we had the pleasure of being hosted in Washington DC by the Library of Congress for our Board meeting and Annual General Meeting, both of which supported remote participation. We also held a series of dedicated project meetings and a joint meeting with Braille Authority of North America.

In November we were delighted to be hosted by RNIB and Google in London, facilitating our board meeting, our first full day technical meeting in a few years, and the UK’s first accessible publishing conference which was live streamed to a global audience.
