General Staff Meeting
30-31 December 2010


Every year in December, all the staff of the Maryknoll Deaf Development Programme are brought together from the provinces and Phnom Penh for a general staff meeting.  The six projects give reports of their activities to update the other staff and Sokly, the manager, goes through various points of policy as a refresher.

One of the advantages of this general staff meeting, now that DDP employees number more than fifty men and women, is allowing staff from the provinces and from Phnom Penh to get to know each other better.  Some staff had never met before this gathering. DDP staff all together
