ASHA’s Multicultural Issues Board (MIB) is charged with recommending Association policies and actions to improve the availability and quality of services for individuals with communication disorders who come from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds. One of the main objectives of the MIB is to monitor ASHA’s Multicultural Action Agenda 2000 that lists six target areas for ASHA to address by the year 2000. The board works closely with the Office for Multicultural Affairs (OMA), under the direction of Vicki Deal-Williams. Following is a brief review of the work of the MIB during 1997 as it relates to the areas in ASHA’s Agenda 2000.
