To those involved in recent edits on this page (aside from myself), it appears that much of this article was derived from ARC promotional materials. The language deviates from Wikipedia's neutrality policy, there are extremely few references or citations (aside from those that I have included), and the writing is better suited for a magazine than an encyclopedia. Whereas it is abundantly clear that ARC has many outstanding achievements in providing humanitarian aid, this can be better described using neutral, well-referenced language. Among other things, it was necessary to remove the first-person pronoun from many phrases as well as a number of contractions. You will better serve both Wikipedia and ARC by editing in a careful and professional manner. Cmacauley (talk) 14:56, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Significant improvement, especially with regard to references. What happened to the Annual Report cover photo? Any plans to replace it? Cmacauley (talk) 14:36, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
