This is an exciting time for technical communicators. The greater number and variety of jobs in our profession is encouraging. Our STC chapter continues to provide programs and services to the Triangle techcomm community. STC memberships will be expiring in less than two weeks, and we want you to stay with us and continue to be part of our value-adding, award-winning community! Here are just a few examples of how you can benefit from being a STC Carolina Chapter member:
  • We are continuing our series of programs with excellent speakers and great networking opportunities. Being part of these events enables you to meet new people, build your skills, and keep current with what is happening in our profession. In 2016, we hosted a variety of educational and social programs, including a DITA workshop and several networking events.
  • Our annual Technical Communication Competition provides an opportunity for you to be recognized for your best technical communication work. It's also a great opportunity to build your skills by volunteering as a competition judge.
  • Our chapter web site, which provides valuable information about what is happening in our chapter as well as in STC and the profession, is always available to keep you informed.
  • Our award-winning newsletter, Carolina Communique, provides in-depth coverage of people and events in our chapter, as well as insightful discussion of pertinent techcomm topics. Your contributions are welcome! Check out our most recent postings online.

I recently completed 32 years of membership in STC, and am grateful to be part of a community of professionals who have become colleagues, friends, and teachers...a community where I have been able to learn new skills, expand my network, and be reminded that I am a valued technical communicator no matter what my career fortunes or job title.

I hope you will see STC's staying power in your professional life as well...and that you will say Yes to renewal in 2017! You can renew right from our chapter web site. For more information about STC membership in general, visit the membership page on the STC website, and click Join or Renew along the top navigation bar.

If you have any questions or concerns about your membership, please feel free to contact me. I love talking about STC and our great chapter, and would be happy to answer any questions you have, or guide you to resources you need.

Thank you for being a member of STC Carolina. I look forward to continuing our professional journey together as a strong community...where every member matters.
