The former standing committee charged with determining the feasibility of updating a published ADR Deskbook. On making its report in 2010, recommending a hardcopy deskbook not be published, the committee was disbanded.

The Deskbook Committee of the WSBA ADR Section undertook an extensive review of the feasibility of publishing a new ADR Deskbook. It recommended that a new ADR Deskbook not be published at this time. The Executive Committee concurred.
The Deskbook Committee did recommend that we continue to explore how to publish high-quality and even scholarly pieces, of the type one would find in a conventional printed deskbook using new publishing and media methods. Specific mention has been made of using a wiki.
So the work of the deskbook committee, as it was formed, is complete.
Thank you to all who have worked on the Deskbook Committee, to chairs Heather van Nuys and David Black, WSBA staff Margaret Morgan, Professor Terry Foster and everyone who has provided input and comment.
If you are interested in the on-going question of publishing articles and best-practices work, please join in the conversation at the Media & Communications Committee group and join the committee!- Jeff Bean, ADR Section Chair (2011)
