So Long, Farewell...For Now

In last quarter's edition, I wrote about how, as a chapter, we are seeing the incarnation of the adage, "The only thing constant is change." The newsletter as we've known it, from a beautiful PDF to a collaborative wiki with eBooks every quarter, is changing yet again.

The way we consume content has changed: we want everything on-demand; so we decided it was time to keep up with that pace. The Carolina Communiqué will now be published on a more frequent and consistent basis, with authors contributing more regularly, instead of waiting until the end of the quarter. Anyone in the technical communication field may write, and you don't have to be a member to contribute. (Check out the updated Author Guidelines.) Articles will also promote STC and industry news along with articles and blog posts republished from other sites.

Because of this change, the managing editor's role needed to adapt as well, and I have decided to pass the torch. (If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, contact President and Interim Managing Editor Sheila Loring.) Though I am sad to be leaving the managing editor role, I know that I must progress alongside the publication. I have sincerely enjoyed working on the newsletter team since 2008 and am proud to be a part of a medium that helps share knowledge, grow networks, and build friendships. I'll still be around, though, writing my own articles from time to time.

I'd like to thank the volunteer writers who make this publication possible, and editors Tim Kornegay and Bill Bryan for their work on the newsletter. Dedicated volunteers who care about our chapter are the strength of our success.

And to you, the audience we analyze and the readers who make it all worth it, thank you for supporting this publication through all its incarnations, and I hope you will continue along for the ride.
