Message from the president
Hello there!  Summer is finally here and I am pleased to be presenting you with our summer 2008 issue of our newsletter.  A lot of activity has taken place since our last newsletter and I hope that you can spare a few moments to share in our news for this quarter. 
Within the last few months, Sterling Creations has managed to expand its clientele in Britain and our research and writing teams have also managed to snag some very exciting projects.  In addition, our accessibility team has just completed a very exciting project and is on the verge of launching a very unique and interesting project in conjunction with its U.S office.  You can learn more about all of this by reading our announcements section.
On behalf of the Sterling Creations team I thank you for your continuing support and feedback because with it we can only get better and without it our hopes will only dwindle.
Best wishes for an enjoyable summer.
