save the chapter
By Christina Mayr, Chapter President :::: STC Carolina is at a crossroads. We are celebrating 50 years as a chapter this year, which is a huge milestone! I’m so excited about this, along with our celebratory Anniversary Gala in June. On the other hand, membership and volunteerism continues to decrease as the years go by.

If there had only been a picture or graphic to explain it, it could have made it clearer and easier to understand the first time through. Infographics in Technical Communication, a combination of information and visual graphics, was presented by Sree Pattabiraman, a member of the STC Carolina chapter and resident expert on the topic, in a very vibrant, enlightening and interactive presentation. Sree described infographics as a way to not just show data visually but u
