Abstract

With the recent reorganization of the American Red Cross, the Central and Western Massachusetts region now produces one annual report instead of four, smaller reports. The goal of this MQP was to design an annual report with the help of American Red Cross representatives. Identifying stakeholders, the rhetorical situation of the annual report, and common techniques used within annual reports created a basis for the development of the document. Due to time constraints, some portions of the final product were left for future volunteer work. The report provides detailed suggestions to reconcile these portions of the report with the finalized sections. The process of developing the document also led to observations on the future of annual reports and their use of technology.
